Mauricia Coquiot, née de Thioers, to whom the present work is dedicated, was a famous circus character of the Belle Epoque between 1904 and 1910. She married the art critic Gustave Coquiot and it was through him that she met Auguste Rodin, Raoul Dufy, Pablo Picasso, Marc Chagall, Moïse Kisling, André Derain, Pierre Bonnard, Georges Rouault and Maurice Utrillo, consequently becoming one of the favourite muses for all these great painters. Coquiot performed in Paris, New York, Moscow and Lisbon; her signature acts were the Autobolide where she looped the loop in a speeding car and somersaulted on the back of a galloping horse. After her husband's death, she was elected mayor of Othis, thus becoming one of the first women to take up this official position after the Second World War.
