AMANDINE DORE (French / 1912-)

Amandine Doré-t'Serstevens was married for 30 years to the writer Albert t'Serstevens; they wed in Tahiti, and she celebrated their marriage in the 2002 book L'Homme au T apostrophe. Among their close circle of friends were the writers Blaise Cendrars and Pierre Mac Orlan. Amandine Doré is notable as one of the few female artists working in the field of French erotica, producing work very much in the “galante” tradition that harks back to Boucher and Fragonard; for clandestine works she used the pseudonym Madame ***. The name Amandine Doré seems itself to have been a pseudonym, as her birth name was Odette Amandine Bonne. Whether her assumption of the name Doré suggests a family link to the artist Gustave Doré, or merely a homage to him, is unsure.
