1.  [September 1898]
Dated from the reference to the Académie Carmen (see below).

The Paris atelier opened by Carmen Rossi, model, proprietess of the Académie Carmen [more]. It opened early in October 1898 and closed on 6 April 1901. The handwriting is unidentified. This draft may have been designed by JW as a correction of the printed poster advertising the Académie, #00008.

3.  MacMonnies
Frederick William MacMonnies (1863-1937), sculptor [more], who left shortly afterwards, apparently to open his own atelier.

4.  modele vivant
