The Women Who Inspired London Art

The Avico Sisters and Other Models of the Early 20th Century

Lucy Merello Peterson

Intrigued by The Queen of Time, the sculpture above the entrance to Selfridges in Oxford Street, Lucy Merello Peterson began researching artists’ models in London. The project revealed not only the Queen as Leopoldine Avico, but also the lives and work of her sisters Marietta and Gilda and many other women who inspired London artists between the early 1900s and the 1930s.
