Leone and Ofelia Caetani fonds

  • CMC A-32; C-130 (PHO Box #2).
  • Fonds
  • [between 1960-1984] - [ca.1915], copied 1993.

Items described here consist of an album containing 103 colour images. The album was compiled to serve as a record of Ofelia's wardrobe prior to its sale following her death and was likely created between 1960 and 1984. According to notes made by Museum curator Dr. Jane Fuller at the time of the donation the model, Mrs. Shirley Paine, was chosen for her resemblance to Ofelia. Also described here are 2 original black and white prints as well as 13 copies featuring Leone and Ofelia Caetani and their daughter Sveva. The originals of these copies have been accessioned by the Vernon Museum. In addition there are 4 colour photographs and 1 colour Polaroid of Ofelia's Louis Vuitton luggage, which has also been donated to the Museum.
