Marie arrives to Greece to Marry Giorgos. She s next to her future father in law King Giorgos and beside her, a "not so happy" Fiance



 

sorry my dear Katenka but I believe ''Giorgos'' is not the most correct way to refer to the prince, in greek it could be Georgios and in english George. ''Giorgos'' in greece is mainly used when we are familiar to someone.

I had no idea. I have friend with greek descendance (Razis) and one of them is called Giorgos, not as a diminutive but his name. That s why i thought it was the name but not  a diminutive (and because in mostly of the times, outside Greece, Giorgos is used as the greek of George). Nice to know the  proper way to spell it. Thanks!

Gogi is clearly a diminutive of "Georgiy". I never heard of someone named "Goggi", just the surname which is italian.

As I have said that was what the late Grand Duchess Josephine Charlotte of Luxembourg called him. I found it rather enderaing.  ;)

From the recent exposition about Marie in Saint-Cloud (near Paris).

A magnificient full-length pastel (Marie in 1907).



Marie with Freud.



It was a fascinating exposition, with wonderful portraits, paintings or photos, her dresses, even her wedding dress, her toys when she was a child, everything was unforgetable! Even an amateur movie showing Marie with Freud and his family, unbelievable, I never saw Marie like this...

Unfortunately the catalogue is not very good, very incomplete, and with only little reproductions. And to take photos in the exposition was forbidden :-(

The photo the portrait was based on was in one of the old illustrated magazines I was looking at this weekend. The Bystander, maybe? (I looked at a lot.  :-[ ) Of course, it was in black & white but it is the exact image down to the flower, tilt of the head and hand positioning. It must have been taken for the portrait or the portait was made off the image.
