The sitter of the present lot resembles Sarah Bernhardt, the beloved and celebrated stage actress remembered for her red hair and striking profile. In the late-nineteenth century, it was very in vogue to capture the spirit of the actress, and women not only styled themselves after her but sought to be painted in her fashion. Maurin and Bernhardt moved in similar circles, and in 1895 Maurin designed sets and costumes for the actress for Edmond Rostand's La Princesse Lointaine.
