Reutlinger album 17

Looks like today is a day of photos, so I’d like to show early photos of Geneviève Lantelme from Reutlinger album # 17 (full version and zoom on Gallica site).

Photos were made in – or circa – 1902 because some of them were published in Les Modes and other magazines. Lantelme is a young and unknown actress, she’s 19 years old, she lives with rich Poidatz who is her ricco protectore (rich protector, as says the hero of Visconti’s masterpiece Senso), but she’s in love with writer Oscar Méténier and this relationship is not without problems. I suppose the jewels we see on photos were paid by Poidatz, and they aren’t very impressive. We know Lantelme was wearing in 1902 clothes designed by Jeanne Paquin (at least in one comedy), but mostly the dresses we see on photos aren’t very interesting from the point of veiw of the fashion.

    J’aurais deux questions à vous poser : chaque album Reutlinger contient-il des photos de différentes époques ou d’une seule ?
    Dans l’album 19, Lantelme est-elle plus jeune que dans le 17 ? En effet, on dirait qu’elle porte un costume de bonne, sur certaines photos de cet album (rôle de débutante)…

      Je crois que ce sont des albums de la meme epoque (ou presque), mais je ne sais pas comment les assistants de Reutlinger ont choisi des photos pour ces albums. En outre Lantelme a joué la bonne dans quelques pieces (y compris la piece de Bernstein dont parle Simone).
