История из серии (Женщины в искусстве) Sarah Bernhardt - Сара Бернар французская актриса стадии конца 19 и начало 20 веков, огромный талант и страстный, огненный характер.
Gr 6 Up-These two series entries serve a dual purpose by introducing readers to strong female figures as well as to consummate artists who made a lasting impression. Gaines seeks to uncover the truth about her subject's life, much of which was fabricated by Chanel herself. Her innovations in fashion along with her creation of her signature fragrance, Chanel No. 5, emblazoned her name onto the minds of a worldwide public. Jeremy Wallis's biography (Heinemann Library, 2001) gives some varying details on Chanel's life and includes an extensive glossary. Gaines doesn't cover any new ground, but her volume is for a slightly older audience. Silverthorne portrays the premier French stage actress of the late 19th and early 20th centuries as a tremendous talent with a passionate, fiery nature. Bernhardt's relationship with the "beloved monster," the name she dubbed her audiences, is shown to be perhaps the most significant one of her life. She drew upon the public's fascination with her and was named by reporters as "the greatest of French ambassadors." The author's comprehensive look at Bernhardt's life, loves, triumphs, and disappointments will appeal to anyone interested in the stage, theater history, and great actors. Both titles contain an array of vivid photographs of the women in their prime and glory. The volumes are well laid out, easy to follow, and visually attractive. Excellent additions to any collection
