Valadon

1010 T-2. Discovered 1973 Sept. 29 by C. J. van Houten and I. van Houten-Groeneveld at Palomar.

Named in memory of the French painter Suzanne Valadon (1865-1938), the first model for Chavannes and the impressionists Degas and Renoir {see, respectively, planets (6673) and (6677)}. Valadon learned drawing and painting from observing these painters. Until 1909 she mainly made drawings. Later she painted nudes, still life and landscapes. Her son was the well-known painter Maurice Utrillo (1883-1955). (M 27463)
