D'Anvers, N

Pseudonym of author and translator Nancy Regina Emily Meugens (1844-1933), who clocked her Belgian ancestry ["Nancy from Antwerp"] through the name she chose for all her translations of novels by Jules Verne. In her own right, as by Mrs A G Bell or Mrs Arthur Bell, she was the author of several popularizing guides to Western art and individual artists, the best known of these being James McNeill Whistler (1904) because he disapproved of her. She wrote no fiction. [JC]
