Sarah Bernhardt postcard
I received an invitation to an exhibit at the International Poster Center. IPC Webpage
We went to the exhibit and I fell for a great postcard of Sarah in her role in L'Aiglon (1900). The card was address to Mademoiselle Ranfer and the note was written by the playwright Edmund Rostund. He was the author of L'Aiglon and Cyrano de Bergerac.
It was great fun seeing the exhibit and putting together the pieces of her life. I also love having a piece of her history living with me!
Here is a great site with some terrific photos of Sarah. The Sarah Bernhardt Pages
