At the age of fifteen, Dina Vierny (born 1919) became a model and muse to the 73-year-old sculptor Aristide Maillol. He claimed that she looked like one of his works "come alive", and that it was her body that he had been sculpting all along. She was Maillol's source of inspiration for the last ten years of his life. Both Henri Matisse and Pierre Bonnard, artists to whom Maillol sent Vierny, attribute to the model a renewed inspiration for painting and sculpture. Dina began as an artists' model in her mid-teens and evolved from being a simple muse to taking a serious interest in the business of curating the art of those for whom she worked. She regarded Maillol as her finest benefactor and mentor. After Maillol's death, in a car crash, Vierny collected the work of Maillol and dozens of his contemporaries, including Matisse and Bonnard, Marcel Duchamp, Andre Bauchant and Wassily Kandinsky. These works are now displayed at the Musee Maillol in Paris. She still lives and works in France.
