She was a creator of great originality.

Over the years, she developed a very personal vision of decoration. We now call it the « Castaing style »

Madeleine owned the largest private collection of Soutine paintings; she and her husband possessed 43 canvasses of the artist.
The artist painted Madeleine’s portrait in 1928 and named it « La Petite Madeleine des décorateurs ».

During the Second World War, Madeleine opened her own antique gallery in the 15th arrondissement of Paris.
