Pierre Bonnard. Misia.
Misia Godebska (1872-1950), the daughter of the Polish emigrant sculptor Cyprien Godebski, initially performed as a pianist. After marrying Thadée Natanson, the editor of La Revue blanche, she hosted a literary-artistic salon – Mallarmé, Debussy, Renoir, as well as young Nabi painters such as Vuillard, Félix Vallotton and Bonnard were among her guests. After Natanson was almost bankrupt, the newspaper magnate Alfred Edwards saved him, on condition that he surrender his wife. Misia's third marriage was with the Spanish painter José Maria Sert (1876-1945).
