Yvonne de Bremond d’Ars with her dog Pacha, 1929

You say you’ve never heard of Yvonne de Bremond d’Ars? Well neither had I until recently. Sadly, information about this antique dealing, gender bending svengali of Gay Paree is very difficult to find. She wrote several novels (some of which seem to be thinly disguised memoirs), but naturally they’re in French and so leave behind stupid gays like me who are too lazy to learn well that noble Romance language.

Anyone who hobnobbed with Foujita, posed for van Dongen and turned little Suzy Solidor into a sapphic singing sensation deserves further investigation.
