Marie Bashkirtseff (1860–1884)

Bashkirtseff, Marie (bäsh-kērts’ef). A Russian author; born Nov. 23, 1860; died at Paris, Oct. 31, 1884. She came of a noble and wealthy family, went to Italy to study singing, and to Paris to study art. Her fame rests on her private ‘Journal’ (1890), which seems to have been written with ultimate publication in view.
