✿ Georges CLAIRIN (1843-1919) ✿

'Il mio corpo
è come una cometa che brilla
le mie labbra palpitano
la pelle brucia
abbandono le braccia
mi assolvo
e nel dolore...
ascolto posseduta

l'eterno
il silenzio'

'Non son le rose
che su dolci spine
m'approdano beata
e neanche la diafana luna pelle
che mi fraseggio nell'Eden come una Dea
che danzo eterna la Primavera...'

Ophelia in the Thistles
Clairin, Georges Jules Victor (Paris,1843-Belle-Île-en-Mer,1919) was a student of Picot and of Pils. He enrolled at the École des Beaux-Arts in 1861 and began exhibiting at the Salon of 1866. He executed decorative paintings for various public buildings in Paris and in the provinces, but is known primarily for his grand historical compositions, Symbolist themes and for the numerous works he exhibited of and for Sarah Bernhardt. Clairin became the favoured portraitist of the actress, depicting her various roles in almost one hundred paintings, notably that of Ophelia, which Bernhardt brought to the stage in 1886. In 1901 an important exhibition at the Galerie Georges Petit was dedicated to Clairin.
