Sarah Bernhard has been my fin de siècle inspiration, popping up in literature, art, and even my past adventures—like that time I sent a tour guide into a spin at Père Lachaise Cemetery just by asking about her grave.

Fast forward to the present: Petit Palais in Paris hosts an entire exhibition dedicated to this icon! It was like stumbling upon a treasure trove, with her portraits, shoes, dresses, and sculptures drawing crowds like bees to honey. Finally, she gets the recognition she deserves!

Ah, and just look at this bat in her hair!

Sarah Bernhard, Et la femme créa la star / Petit Palais, Paris, 14 April 2023 to 27 August 2023

Bisou bisou, Jo 🖤
