Artist's Description

Now in the Sonate. Calendar

and available as cards and prints

Delphine was a very beautiful young woman with a very pleasing voice. She sang in the nightclubs and salons of Paris. But life was not to be good to her.

She was feted by Viscounts and Princes, received gifts and compliments. One day however she had a tragic accident. She was not a high born girl, even though she was a talented one.

She lived the life of a poor artiste and one night, alone in her chambre de bonne, her life changed forever. She was eating peas off her knife when a sudden noise in the street startled her and made her lurch forward. The knife went down her throat. Fortunately, only the blunt edge touched her vocal chords, but she never spoke or sang again.

Delphine was still young and energetic and when she had recovered sufficiently she made a plan towards a new life. She would go to India.

After boarding the ship she realized the truth…things were going to be far from easy for her. Instead of subjecting herself to working in the disreputable houses of Bombay she threw herself into the ocean.

They say that if you board a ship at Le Havre you can still hear her singing in the breeze…

This is another attempt at Very Fine Old Fashioned Collage with respect to our friends articulation
