Misia, Queen of Paris
Misia, Queen of Paris

Exhibition at the Musée d'Orsay (Orsay Museum) from 12 June to 9 September 2012.

The "Queen of Paris", as Misia Godebska (1872-1950) was called, became known for her beauty and her talents as a pianist. She was the wife of Thadée Natanson, editor of Revue Blanche, then the press magnate Alfred Edwards before marrying the painter José Maria Sert. She was also a close friend of Mallarmé and Picasso, a source of inspiration for Proust and Cocteau, and a patron of Diaghilev and his Ballets Russes (Russian Ballets). Painted by the great artists of her time, she is a legendary figure in the artistic life from the Belle Époque to the Roaring Twenties.
