mistress musings


Virginia Oldoini, Countess of Castiglione (La Castiglione) as Donna Elvira, a lady of Burgos abandoned by Don Giovanni, Photo by Pierre Louis Pierson, 1863.

Virginia Oldoini, Countess of Castiglione was a source of inspiration to Marchesa Luisa Casati.

Virgiana Oldoini (Italian, 1837-1899), countess of Castiglione. She was the spy and mistress of french emperor Napoleon III.

La Castiglione.

This was someone who didn’t follow the fashion trend. When she arrived at a party in Paris you could never figure out what she was wearing. It was like a costume, she invented everything. She was very mysterious and she didn’t want to talk. If she talked with someone, it was with men. She hated women. La Castiglione was a woman who left quite an impression.

Lucrezia as Poetry (c.1641). Salvator Rosa (Italian, 1615-1673). Oil on canvas. Wadsworth Atheneum.

Paintings of allegorical figures were popular in 17th-century Italy, but this work by Rosa is in a class of its own. It portrays his mistress, Lucrezia, as the Muse of Poetry. The traditional symbols of poetry, such as the pen, book, and laurel leaves, help to identify the subject, but it is the half defiant, half withdrawn attitude of Lucrezia that gives the portrait its particular, enigmatic tone.

All praise to wise Mnemosyne, mother of Muses,
mistress of your mother’s wisdom,
buried deep within the earth, with bone and stone.
Mistress of memory, the sweet and the sharp,
protector of history, preserver of stories,
maintainer of tales of sorrow and joy,
yours is the truth within the fact,
the shadow cast on what we know
by what has been forgotten.
O mother of sight and inspiration, I call to you.
I honor you, good and gracious Mnemosyne,
I offer you my praise and seek your blessing.

What price love? In Lara, Anna Pasternak chronicles her famous great-uncle Boris’s relationship with his mistress, Olga Ivinskaya. Ivinskaya inspired a character in Boris Pasternak’s 1957 novel Doctor Zhivago, and her connection with the author landed her in the gulags.

In ‘Lara,’ The True Story Of Pasternak’s Muse And Mistress

“Hm, so you can’t die now,” the Mistress mused as she watched Clara carefully, catlike eyes crawling up and down the younger woman’s body.

Clara squirmed at the mirth in the other woman’s smile, the suggestion in her eyes.

“Nope, pretty neat, eh?” Clara sat on the TARDIS console to appear nonchalant to Missy’s intense gaze. Clara began swinging her feet.

Missy took a step forward, and Clara’s breath caught in her throat.

“Suppose it might upset you, seeing as you can’t kill me now, because I’m already dead,” Clara said with a dare. It was no secret the Mistress relished the thought of killing her. If Clara was a bit less sane, the thought would have turned her on.

A chuckle escaped Missy, and Clara yelped in pain as the other woman took a long stride forward and pulled her pony tail back, tilting the younger woman’s face toward her.

She caressed Clara’s cheek, digging a black lacquered fingernail along her jawline. If Clara had a heartbeat, she was sure it would be pounding in her ears.

“But you can still feel?” The Time Lady’s lips were inches from hers.

Not being able to die made Clara bold as she reached behind Missy and grabbed a handful of that maddeningly thick hair.

Pulling Missy down further, lips ghosting against her blood red lips, Clara murmured, “Why don’t you just try and find out?”

Monet at Vétheuil (55)
Alice in Monetland
Camille, Monet’s first wife, died early September 1879. During her lifetime, she had been Monet’s model, muse, mistress, wife and mother of his two children. She had been the model, or at least was included in 56 of Monet’s works.
But in the late spring or early summer of 1880, someone else makes her first appearances in Monet’s oils: Alice Hoschedé. She was married to the ruined Ernest Hoschedé - an early patron of the impressionists. The fact that Alice lived under the same roof as the Monets with her six children - but often without her husband who spent most of his time in Paris - was an understandable source of gossip.

In this painting, we can see Alice hiding from the sun under an umbrella. And perhaps also two of the children in Monet’s rowing boat?

           Cara gave the young brunette a curious glance. “Aren’t you a little YOUNG to be in a place like this?” She gestured to the bar and then to behind her, where a few of the girls were dancing. “You’re definitely in the right place however if you’ve come to be a dancer. Though only if you’re 18.”
