Some photos of Geneviève Lantelme by Léopold Reutlinger:

I’d like to say a word about captions: they are not always correct. For example, this and this are not photos of Lantelme (there are photos of Marthe Regnier in a similar costume among Reutlinger photos, but I’m not sure she’s also on photos marked as Lantelme). And one photo of Simone Frevalles is in reality a photo of Geneviève Lantelme (photo found and identified by Corinne):

Daniel de Losques

I didn’t write about Daniel de Losques centenary in August, and nobody wrote. Such an excellent artist is completely forgotten, what a pity.

He died in an air combat on 9 August 1915, during I World War.

On this version of photo we can see better details of Lantelme’s boudoir, for example a picture on the wall. It looks like a page taken from a revue (maybe Le Theatre or Les Modes, but I’m not sure).
