    The present lot is dedicated to Mrs Charles Hayem, who was born Flore Amélie Melanie Franck, the daughter of a distinguished philosopher Adolphe. In 1864 she married Charles Hayem; the eldest of five children, he was an employee and partner in his father's business. Together, Mr and Mrs Hayem amassed an important collection of art which was displayed at their Paris apartment at 84 Boulevard Malesherbes. The couple hosted important intellectual and artistic discussions, with writers, Royalty, painters and Directors of Museums. Mr Hayem was a patron and friend of Gustave Moreau and one of the first to collect the Impressionist artists, including Monet, Pissarro and Boudin. The couple made a number of donations to the Luxembourg Museum and approximately 46 works were assigned to the Musée d'Orsay, including another work by Raffaëlli titled Guests waiting for the wedding.
