Madame Sans-Géne

Gabrielle Rejane
From PUNCH magazine, July 7, 1894.

Illustration of the actress Gabirelle Rejane in her garb for the comedic role of Madam Sans-Géne in which she is a former washerwoman who meets the Emperor Napoleon, and she has an old unpaid bill from when the ruler of Europe was still but a mere Corporal.

The play from 1894 was quite a hit and made Gabrielle Rejane quite popular in France, England and the United States (the play reached New York in 1895). The review from Punch Magazine from July 7, 1894 doesn't give very high marks to the effort written by Sardou and Moreau, but even a cursory search on the internet shows that the fame of the comedy has lived on, at least in the historical sense.

Be sure to also see the image enlargement of the fine illustration of Gabrielle Rejane.
