historical notes Louisine Elder Havemeyer (1855-1929) was daughter of a wealthy merchant and sugar industrialist George W. Elder and wife Mathilda Adelaide Waldron in New York (The Havemeyers: Impressionism Comes to America).

In 1883 she married the sugar industrialist, Henry Osborne Havemeyer (1847-1907). Both Louisine Elder and Henry Havemeyer began collecting art before they were married.

The Havemeyer collection included old masters, Asian and decorative arts with an emphasis on nineteenth-century French art, rich with works of art by Degas, Corot, Courbet, Manet, CĂ©zanne, and Monet.

Mrs Havemeyer Lent two Rembrandts and a Pieter de Hooch to the Hudson-Fulton Celebration in 1909.
