Goldschmidt, Léopold

French, 1830 - 1904

Goldschmidt, Léopold Benedict Hayum


Léopold was the son of financier and philanthropist Solomon H. Goldschmidt (d. 1898). In 1855 he married Régine Bischoffsheim (1834-1905), sister-in-law of the baron Maurice de Hirsch and member of the Bischoffsheim banking family of Belgium, Great Britain, and France, with whom the Goldschmidts were business associates. Léopold was a collector of furnishings and objects d'art, kept in his home on the rue Rembrandt, some of which were donated to departments of the Louvre in 1892 and 1900-1901, and to the Musée du Luxembourg in 1902. Some of his collection was inherited by his Frankfurt relatives, S.B. Goldschmidt (died c. 1907) and his son Emil Goldschmidt (died c. 1909).
