Note on Provenance
Lady Helen Vincent, Viscountess D'Abernon, was a renowned society beauty and diarist, who was associated with The Souls, and believed to have been the model for the characters of Lady Thisbe Crowborough in Max Beerbohm's story Hilary Maltby and Stephen Braxton in Seven Men (1919) and for Lady Irene Silvester in Maurice Baring's story A Luncheon Party (1925). She sat to John Singer Sargent in 1904 during a protracted visit to Venice, and the resulting portrait, now in Birmingham, Alabama, is an extremely convincing testament to her remarkable beauty.
