Vintage original 7 ½ x 12 ½" (19 x 31 cm.) inscribed, signed and dated sepia-tinted cabinet photo, UK. The French-born stage and early film actress who debuted on the stages of France in the 1870s and came to world prominence, dubbed "The Divine Sarah," has inscribed the image in French, signed and dated it. During 1899 she was working in Great Britain and had this portrait done by photographers to the Queen, W and D Downey. During the time she performed in Shakespeare's plays Hamlet, Antony and Cleopatra and Macbeth, as well as Richepin's Pierrot Assassin. The following year, in 1900, she would appear for the first time on film in an excerpt from HAMLET. Between 1908 and 1923 (the year of her death) she would make ten more film appearances. The inscription reads "A mon cher Clarkson" ("to my dear Clarkson"). There is some minor wear to the extreme edges of this lovely piece. VERY GOOD. Bookseller Inventory # 10257
