Speaking of intimacy and hygiene... It is not the best place to post it, not the appropriate subject so a moderator can correct me. I was thrilled to find paintings that show something so intimate as the subject of hygiene and accurate details interest me the most. Boucher is magnificent whatever subject he chooses, isn't he?

If this is not some other Mme Genlis, then this is the lover of Duc the Orleans, and the gouvernante of his children. Not just beautiful but very intelligent and educated lady of the time.

Gosh, it is nearly been a year since we have discussed in our salon the wonderful diversity of 18thC portraits. Please do join in, members old and new!

Here is a short series of famous performers of the era.

File comment: Sarah Siddons (5 July 1755 – 8 June 1831) was a Welsh actress, the best-known tragedienne of the 18th century. She was the elder sister of John Philip Kemble, Charles Kemble, Stephen Kemble, Ann Hatton and Elizabeth Whitlock, and the aunt of Fanny Kemble. She was most famous for her portrayal of the Shakespearean character, Lady Macbeth, a character she made her own - from Wikipedia.

File comment: Semenova became a student in the Saint Petersburg Theatre School in 1790 where she was instructed by Ivan Dmitrevsky and debuted at the stage in 1797. She eventually became the leading interpreter of plays of William Shakespeare, Jean Racine, Friedrich Schiller and Vladislav Ozerov. She was coached by director Prince Sharkovsky and the poet Nikolay Gnedich.
Semenova was admired for her beauty, deep voice and passionate way of acting. She was mentioned in the poems of Alexander Pushkin, but also talked about because of her rivalry with Marguerite Georges, who was very popular in the Russian Empire at the time.

File comment: She was born in London, the daughter of Valentine Snow, a sergeant-trumpeter. As a child, she was trained by her father for a future musical career. At the age of eighteen she eloped with the actor Robert Baddeley, then on the stage at Drury Lane. She made her first appearance as an actress there on 27 April 1765, as Ophelia in Hamlet. She also played Cordelia in King Lear, Imogen in Cymbeline and later Olivia in Twelfth Night. In 1769, she joined David Garrick's theatre company when he staged the Stratford Jubilee. More noted as a talented singer than an actress, she obtained engagements at Ranelegh and Vauxhall to public acclaim - from Wikipedia
