Hiya Walt, You must of heard of Cleo De Merode, she was the muse for the great artists of the day such as Toulouse Lautrec, Klimt and Much.
Interesting take you have on her with the Halloween theme – love how you’ve switched her plume hat with a jester’s hat. Lovely work.
Thank you Mui-Ling, she had a delightful macabre nature so I thought it was apt to include some dark and mysterious elements about Cleo. : D
yes, i know her,, well, oh yes,,she got around, and around,when, she wasn,t getting around, she was looking,for any painter, with a brush,,she was soo friendly, that she had to go to confession three times a day, you know all, the??left bankers john,
The Belgian king Leopold 11 fell in love when he saw her at a ballet she was performing at the Musee D’Orsay but because of her dubious reputation he was forced to denounce her publicly.
A very interesting lady.
She looks superbly decadent Jovan, always thought she was so beautiful. : – )
Thank you sweetie, she was definitely a lively and interesting character and she lived rather long considering her vices.

Belle Epoque indeed a fascinating and romantic period to be in Paris…a wonderfully evocative composition John
Say no more Loui! The Belle Epoque, one of my favourite and exciting periods in art history and possibly one of my greatest influences in the way I do my art. : D
A beautiful work Giovanni… but was the “Belle époque” so beautiful ? I have some doubts…
I think it was coined “Beautiful” as in it was an era when the arts and literature was allowed to flourish, and it was an age of great scientific and engineering achievement but in terms of human suffering and misery I guess it was a misnomer. Thank you Dominique, hope you are well. : D
