A Winter's Walk

Throughout their fifty-year-long friendship, Abbéma would paint Bernhardt’s portrait numerous times, and would serve as her companion and confidante until Bernhardt’s death in 1923.

Sharing just one painting today.

Lovely painting. Sarah (if it is Sarah) looks cold and lonely, though.
