About Juana Edwards Mac-Clure

I bought the fans at an antique market in Grosseto Italy, Carlos had sold the fans some years ago. He is now living in Roccatederighi near Grosseto and has become a fotographer, I met him during his foto exibitions at the end of August 2009. Patricia was visiting from England.

Have you seen Juana's portrait with Marie Rose (a little girl) painted by Boldini?

I read some family history and still researching on it. I found something about Antonio Gandarillas and his "happy" life. Antoio and Juana during their life in Paris met many famous painters and musicians.

If you would like to see my 3 fans I would be happy to send pictures of them and portrait (I do not own the paiting, it was sold in 2005 for abaout € 889.000 )

I need an e-mail

thank you again for replying


Hello Jaime,

Here are the picutures of the fans I' m happy to have. They belonged to Juana Edwards Gandarillas and were sold by her grand-son Carlos Eastman Gandarillas

The autograph fan so called because it was in fashion at the time to use it for autographs of famous people and friends as a souvenir to impotant events, it dates 1880-1900 and it is sìgned by Tiarko Richepin,Wisol, Rosmonde Gérard, Pawel Kochanski, Eugéne Brieux, Pierri Loit, Maurice Rostand (Rosmonde Gérard and Edmond Rostand's son) They were all famous musicians and writers of the time. The page is made of swan skin and the sticks are of white mother of pearl, opened it measures cm 66,5. Made in France by La Maison Creusy.

The Vernis fan is called brisè and it's ivory painted and varnished as the Vernis Martin style with characters of the "Commedia dell'arte" on the front, you can see Harlwequin, Colombina, Rosaura Ballanzone (the doctor) and his wife. In the back ground St. Mark's Basilica. On the back more painting and overall oriental miniture paitings "Chinoserie". it dates 1720-1740 Italian. Opened measures cm 34

The last fan has a swan skin leaf painted with Majos and Majas playing La Gallina Ciega signed by J.G Lara copied from a painting by Goya at the Prado Museum. The leaf dates 1850 -1870 (Spanish) probably substituted at some time because the sticks (French) ivory with gold and silver giding date 1170 -1780. On the back a GE paitend for Gandarillas Edwards. Opened measures cm 50.

The portrait was painted by Giovanni Boldini in 1914. Your beautiful second cousin Juana and her daughter (Marie Rose) . She is holding on to the child because frightened by the painter (so Carlos told me)

Hope you enjoyed the pictures

All the best


P.S. if you have any information on Juana and family, I'd be very happy thank

Hello Jamie,

thank you so much for your information, I should be meeting Carlos next month, so he will be happy when I tell him about you. Internet is surely an amazing place!

I knew about Juana's studies in France and her marriage to Antono Gandarillas (very complex busy life in the belle epoque era) and the fact that he was the  nephew of Eugenia Errazuriz (Picasso's patron) opened the doors to "high society"

Boldini painted the "well do society", he was the most fashionable portrait painter in Paris in the late 19th century

There are other portraits of Juana by other well known painters such as the russian Boris Dmitrievich Grigor'ev the British Augustus John who also drew a sketch of Carmen. I know there should be a family portrait painted byAmbrose Mcevoy in 1918 and later in 1923 Antonio Gandarillas was erased and it remained Senora Gandarillas y sus hijias. I would be very happy to see it...

I think Marie Rose is barried in Italy, but any news about Carmen and Juanita?

Thank you again

Wishing you the very best
