ⓘ Apolline Lacroix

Apolline Lacroix was a French actress who married Paul Lacroix, the curator of the Bibliotheque de lArsenal in Paris, on May 7, 1834. She lived with Paul Lacroixs collaborator, art collector Theophile Thore-Burger, for more than a decade until his death.

On Thore-Burgers death, she inherited his valuable art collection which included paintings by Vermeer and The Goldfinch by Fabritius that Thore-Burger had found in Brussels 200 years after its creation. Much of the collection was subsequently sold off.
