Portrait of Madame X by John Singer Sargent (1884)
“Her unnaturally pale skin was rumored to be caused by ingesting small amounts of arsenic, which combined with the lavender powder she loved to put all over her body - including on the tips of her ears, gave her an unnatural glow. It was this glow that entranced Sargent - and which he would struggle to capture in the studio.”
