Limoges Part 1

Hartmann’s picture done on the spot at Limoges, shows a group of market women in lively conversation by their pushcarts. Mussorgsky scribbled in the margin of his score and imaginary conversation between the women which he crossed out to make place for a second conversational sketch: “La grande nouvelle: Mr de Puissangeout vient de retrouver sa vache “La Figitive. Mais les bonnes dames de Limoges ne sont pas tout à fait d’accord sur ce sujet, parce que Mme de Remboursac s’est approprié[e] une belle denture en porcelaine, tandis que Mr de Panta-Pantaléon garde toujours son nez gênant-couleur pivouane.” – “Great news! M. de Puissangeout has just recovered his cow, The Fugitive. But the good crones of Limoges are not entirely agreed about this, whereas M. be Panta-Pantaleon’s nose, which is in the way, remains the color of a peony.”
