Mlle Clémentine

Mlle Clémentine of the Délassements-Comiques

A carte-de-visite portrait of Mlle Clémentine of the Délassements-Comiques, probably seen here imitating the dancer Rigolboche. It is also possible that the preposterous blonde wig and the gesture that became Rigoleboche's 'trademark' first originated in the show Folichons et folichonettes in which Rigolboche and Clémentine both appeared.

Photographed by Alexandre Ken of Paris.
