"... Once Manet sees a girl of about twenty in Mober's Square, she immediately attracted him by her extraordinary appearance-a defiantly defiant look, a face marked by bright beauty.What a model this girl would be, she could certainly help create a big picture, about what he long dreams.

 She has a small but strong, thin, graceful body. This blonde with a rusty hue of hair, matte, very pale skin, large brown eyes bordered by such light eyelashes that they are almost not noticeable. Suddenly, Manet is next to her and with his usual unconstrained charm, the gourmet smile is playfully asking if she would not have agreed to pose for him.

The quiz likes not only the Mane-artist, she likes Mane-man. Soon an intimate affinity arises between them, and the rumor of this creeps through Paris. Of course, Suzanne does not know anything, besides, her temper is meek, and is it worth it to sound the alarm because of some whim, a whim ... "
