Cléo de Mérode (1875-1966) was a ballet dancer whose fame extended to popular culture in an age before the supermarket cashier stand magazine rack. I have a book about her titled Cléo de Mérode et la photographie: La première icône moderne, where the subtitle can be translated as "the first modern icon."
Cléo attracted painters, sculptors and photographers like a magnet. To see why, scroll down.
According to the book cited above, the location of this statue is unknown.
Clairin is best known for his paintings of Sarah Bernhardt. I blogged about her portraits here.
This is perhaps the most famous painting of Cléo. Click on the image to enlarge.
