Marie-Christine Roux (1835-1860) was a French actress and painters' model. The fictional character Musette in La Vie de Bohème by Henri Murger was inspired by her.

She was photgraphed by Parisian photographer Gaspard-Félix Tournachon, better known as Nadar[1].

According to Helmut Gernsheim, Nadar's picture of Marie-Christine Roux unmistakably reappears in Ingres's La Source[2]. According to Gernsheim has, Ingres sent Roux to Nadar for preliminary studies for La source, the same year the painting was completed.
