Charles de Noailles
From The Art and Popular Culture Encyclopedia
Arthur Anne Marie Charles, Vicomte de Noailles (26 September 1891- 28 April 1981), married Marie-Laure de Noailles in 1923. They were famous art patrons and lived in Villa Noailles built by Robert Mallet-Stevens between 1923 and 1933 in Hyères in the South of France.
He was a grandson of Antonin-Just-Léon-Marie de Noailles, 5th duc de Mouchy and younger brother of the 6th Duc de Mouchy (father of the present Duc), himself a cadet of the French ducal house of Noailles. Though events transpired to reveal that Charles de Noailles was gay, the ill-matched couple had two daughters, Laure Madeleine Thérèse Marie (Mme Bertrand de La Haye Jousselin who died 1979) and Nathalie Valentine Marie (former wife of Alessandro Perrone, who died 2004).
