Lithograph with large margins. Sheet size: 290 x 225mm. (11½ x 8¾).
A portrait of Pauline Virginie Déjazet (1798 – 1875), a French actress, who made her first appearance on the stage at the age of five. It was not until 1820, when she began her enrollment with the recently founded Gymnase, that she gained recognition with parts which came to be known as 'Dejazets'. She played at the Theatre des Varietes and finally became manager. It was then renamed Theatre Dejazet. She took a touring company to London's Opera Comique in 1870. One of the great names of the French stage.
