Albert Jnr, my Gt.Grandfather
He has a new home
Albert Snr's close friend, Jules Dalou, did this bust of him in thanks for the months he spent with Albert and his family in London after Dalou escaped the Paris uprising. Albert helped him get on his feet, and found him a home and a studio. The bust now lives in The Leigon of Honor Museum in San Francisco, which is probably better than it sitting in our mother's hallway, with the dog lead around his neck.
No question about where I get my high forehead and nose from!
