Hannah Rothschild’s 2012 book The Baroness is an expose of her great-aunt Nica, the “rebellious Rothschild,” a woman who lived out her years hovering on the edge of society. The book cover illustration capturing Nica’s particular je ne sais quoi is by San Francisco based artist couple Vivenne Flesher and Ward Shumaker.
