More information

Born in Nantes in 1894, Cahun was born into a provincial but prominent intellectual Jewish family. They were the niece of avant-garde writer Marcel Schwob and the great-niece of Orientalist David Léon Cahun. When Cahun was four years old, their mother, Mary-Antoinette Courbebaisse, began suffering from mental illness, which ultimately led to her permanent internment at a psychiatric facility. In their mother's absence, Cahun was brought up by their grandmother, Mathilde Cahun.
