Catalogue Note

Daughter to John McPherson Berrien Connelly (1845-1905) and Grace Sterling King (1846-1875), Grace King Connelly (1875-1956) married Ugo Gregorini-Bingham (1869-1924) in 1894 in Paris. Their daughter, Grace Gregorini-Bingham, was born in 1896 in Bologna. Also known as "Minnie l'Italienne", she married Charles Louis, prince de Beauvau-Craon (1878-1942) in 1920. They had a son, Marc de Beauvau-Craon (1921-1982).

In our opinion, this charming portrait was executed by Boldini circa 1894, before Grace's wedding, in accordance with the usage.
