Polaire reading in bed. Polaire was the stage name used by French singer and actress Émilie Marie Bouchaud (1874–1939).
Polaire was naturally slender, endowed with the ”sinewy, muscular body of a little Arab” and a ”rib-cage like a Spanish bolero.” Her supposed ugliness – her large hands, large feet, thick mouth and long nose – were flaunted by her promoters. She posed as an enemy of ”civilisation,” and cultivated, on stage, a sensually barbaric style.

Gustav Klimt. Love, 1895.

Cruel? I think there never was a cheatingMore cruel, thro’ all the weary days than this!This is no dream, my heart kept on repeating,But sober certainty of waking bliss.
Dreams? O, I know their faces, goodly seeming,Vaporous, whirled on many-coloured wings;I have had dreams before, this is no dreaming,But daylight gladness that the daylight brings.
What ails my love; what ails her? She is paling;Faint grows her face, and slowly seems to fade!I cannot clasp her, stretch out unavailingMy arms across the silence and the shade.
~”In the Night.” By Amy Levy. c. 1880’s.

Poster by Paul Berthon designed for the Salon des Arts Libéraux, ca. 1900.
Description: A striking design of two women by a lithographic printing press. Like all Berthon’s posters, it was designed as a decorative lithograph in which the text played no real part, but was confined to reserves outside the subject.
