  Josephine Baker was an Afr-American woman entertainer who left America to try to establish her career in Europe. Her performances were considered exotic and enjoyable in Europe, but in the US, they were too risqué, and she was treated with too much racially intense negativity.

Thanks a lot!! :clap: :clap: This was my first time to attempt a drawing with this type of lighting. :ok: A lot of erasing took place to try and get it right, so I appreciate your mention of the light play. :whip: :whip: :whip: :hi: :ok: :ok: I'm pretty sure, however, that it could have been done with ease from a more qualified artist :blowkiss:

I remember!!! Her last husband gave up everything to help with the house, and those children. :( When she finally went back to work, it was too much for her heart. :

People in Paris liked to see her dance naked with very little clothes on and bananas round her waist... :/ She helped jazz get known in Europe and joined the Resistance during WWII. Lovely tribute. :whip: :whip: :whip: :whip: :whip: :whip: :whip: :whip: :whip:

Yes, Sara Josephine McDonald, born right here in St. Louis, Missouri, in 1937. I hate what the bananas represented. I don't know who thought that up, but still, she was accepted as an exotic artist in France. Many an artist from the USA, found artistic refuge in France. What a blessed thing to be able to do when your own country does not accept you because of the color of your skin. :

I don't know if whatever is posted on Wikipedia can be trusted... What I read is that in 1925, a Frenchman called René Daven, whose Théâtre des Champs-Elysées needed to regain a bit of popularity (or to attract attention!), decided to create a show featuring Afro-American artists. He sent an American lady called Caroline Dudley to the US and she convinced 12 musicians including Sidney Bechet, and 8 dancers including Josephine Baker, to cross the Atlantic. There wasn't supposed to be anything colonialist about the show, but I have a slight doubt. :/

I don't know either, but I think they started to monitor information given, quite a few years ago. I was challenged once with some information I posted about Stanley Ketchel. They would not post it. It was in the book my son and I had researched for his book that was published in 2010. Upon, the new information received from his (Stanley Ketchel's) great, great nephew, what I posted was verified. So, I think they might be good.

You are right! She was older than being born in 1937. That would have made her younger than my mother, so I know she was older than that.

1906, as I just saw, sounds like a more appropriate birth year.

You are absolutely right! I am going to write to them. I donate once a year to them, so I want the truth!! Or, maybe I read it wrong. :laugh: :laugh:

I just read it wrong. You are right! 1906 is her birth date. Please forgive me. I was born in 1951, so I'm old, too. :laugh: :laugh: :\ Glad I'm not dead yet, but crying because I'm old!

Vanessafari - hace 5 años

We spend our lives getting older and older, even before we are born, come to think of it... Life is a weird thing (just like miracles I guess). Clinging to youth while each moment makes us older than before is a bit like trying to walk forth while looking backwards, or to stop the flow of water... Now here's a funny thing about the sentence "I am crying because I am old". Remove the last word and the four first become unnecessary. (Yes, I like silly statements.) :cute: :cute: :hi:

Hi Carliss, old you are not old ..opps!!!!! sorry I read your conversation with Vanessa and enjoyed your words ...hey!!!! I was born in 48 and I'm not old ..just mature ( although there are some who might not agree)...and still I say that it is only a number.. Hey loved the info you added on J Baker( checked her out on google ) also the beautiful likeness and lighting captured in your portrait.. She could be a Logie award. getting the likeness on a figure drawing takes talent ..well done . :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:
