    Thanks for sharing these photos with us. It is great to put a face to a famous name.
    How many children did they have?
    Madame Venon was quite beautiful!

    Thank you for your comments. Jules and Gabrielle had one son, Claude H. Venon. Jules died when Claude was thirteen years old. Claude is now 88. Claude is an artist and enjoyed painting seascapes of the Long Island Sound off the coast of Connecticut near where he lived most of his adult life. I posted one of his paintings of the Five Mile River on the venon site, although I am not sure collectors weekly is meant for items such as fine art, so I did not post more. Would love you thoughts.

    Thanks for putting a face to the name we have been discussing for so long now, and i agree Gabrielle was very beautiful.
    I would be interested to see Claude's paintings as Jules Henri clearly had a very interesting artistic mind and it would be nice to see how this passed on to his son.
