Time Magazine 1934-04-16: Romain Rolland Engaged to Marie Koudachev

photo from

Romain Rolland won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1915. He was a writer and playwright, educator, critic and musician. Wikipedia describes him as a "A teacher, a pacifist, and a loner". Nonetheless he was married twice. The second time to Marie Kudashev (1895-1985) - the half-French, half-Russian widow of a Kudashev. Their engagement was announced in Time magazine. The image above shows the two of of them together - the photo taken perhaps through a reflection of an image of a solitary man.
