Born in Paris, France on 6 November 1911, to the Baron Édouard Alphonse James de Rothschild and Germaine Alice Halphen, Jacqueline de Rothschild Piatigorsky came into a family of incredible wealth, status, and influence.

As a child, within the enclaves of her family’s homes, Jacqueline was surrounded by a world-class art collection with walls of paintings by artists such as Vermeer, Velázquez, Rembrandt, and Holbein.

After a brief first marriage, Jacqueline met the cellist, Gregor Piatigorsky, at a party hosted by her friend. Shortly after, in 1937, they were married in a simple civil ceremony in Ann Arbor, Michigan in between stops on Gregor’s concert tour. As newlyweds, the Piatigorskys settled briefly in Paris. Together they had one daughter and one son, Jephta and Joram. However, with anti-Jewish sentiment and persecution spreading across Europe in the late 1930s and Hitler on the rise, Jacqueline knew they must leave France. Thanks to her prescience, the family boarded a ship bound for the United States just two hours before France declared war on Germany. They arrived in New York on 9 September, 1939. Jacqueline passed away on 15 July, 2012, at the age of 100, in Brentwood, California.”
