  • Anna de Noailles, Rodin, Metropolitan Museum, New York

    Anna de Noailles’s marble bust by Rodin exhibited at the Metropolitan Museum of New York, in the collection of “Unfinished” works. Because Anna de Noailles never recognized her bust by Rodin, it is known only as “Madame X.” The first picture is taken from the exhibit’s website. The other five pictures were taken by Professor Roxana Verona, from Dartmouth College (reproduced here with her permission).

    À Anna de Noailles, poétesse (1876-1933)

    Respectueusement.

    Anna de Brancovan, comtesse de Noailles,
    Vous avez dit l’amour, la vie, la mort indue…
    Je vous ai lue souvent ; s’il faut, vaille que vaille,
    Que je m’exile un jour sur une île perdue,
    Je prendrai avec moi mon âme véritable,
    Bien sûr j’emporterai ma plume et du papier
    Et le cœur en émoi et le cœur innombrable
    Ainsi je partirai (que devrai-je expier ?),
    L’ombre des jours sera ma compagne fidèle
    Mais à l’ombre aisément, comme l’aube à la nuit,
    Succèdent, apparat de promesses nouvelles,
    Les éblouissements des soleils reconstruits :
    [. . .]
