Catalogue Note

Hélène, or Elena, Benois was the daughter of Alexander Benois and Serebriakova's first cousin. She too inherited the family gift for painting and studied under Alexander Yakovlev in Russia before emigrating to Paris after the Revolution, like her cousin, where she worked as an artist and set designer.
