Charlotte Béatrice de Rothschild was a strong headed, fickle, decisive woman. She constructed her incredible villa at Saint Jean Cap Ferrat and filled it with stunning artwork, inside and out.

 

She was a French socialite, an art collector, and a member of the Rothschild banking family of France.

1864-1934

In her will, Béatrice Ephrussi de Rothschild secured her villas, arts, treasures, gardens, and more by dedicating them to the purpose of creating a museum, as it is presented today. Her undying efforts in creating a stunning location hardly went unnoticed.
