Poet K.D. Balmont by Modest Durnov  

Я ненавижу всех святых —
Они заботятся мучительно
О жалких помыслах своих,
Себя спасают исключительно.

Giovanni Boldini (1842 – 1931)

Portrait of Lina Cavalieri, oil on canvas.

The Italian operatic soprano Lina Cavalieri was known for her great beauty. Blessed with a good singing voice, a young Cavalieri made her way to Paris, France, where her stunning good looks opened doors and she obtained work as a singer at one of the city’s café-concerts. During her career she sang with the Opéra de Monte-Carlo, the Sarah Bernhardt Theatre in Paris, the Metropolitan Opera, the Oscar Hammerstein’s Manhattan Opera Company; she was a much-loved star in pre-Revolutionary St. Petersburg, Russia.

Her portrait by the Italian artist Giovanni Boldini was acquired by Maurice Rothschild.
