cléo de mérode, by giovanni boldini (1901)

 ”Cléo de Mérode, an international sensation, one of the the most photographed woman in the world in her time, was a French ballerina, who achieved fame with her face, not her feet. Cléo was a good dancer but above all her beauty caught the public’s eye- her brand of beauty seems to transcend time, she looks as if she would have fitted quite happily into any decade of the Twentieth Century, even the silk taupe blouse she is wearing for the Boldini painting has a touch of modernity about it.”
