Ida Rubinstein by Romaine Brooks, 1917.

Romaine Brooks (1874 – 1970) made a name for herself in Paris as a painter of women, some of whom were her lovers.

In 1911, Brooks became romantically involved with the Ukrainian-Jewish actress and dancer Ida Rubinstein. Rubenstein was the rock star of her day and caused quite a stir by appearing with Serge Diaghilev's Ballets Russes. D'Annunzio had an obsessive but unrequited attraction to Rubinstein as well. Rubinstein was deeply in love with Brooks and wanted to buy a farm in the country where they could live together—a mode of life in which Brooks had no interest.

Although they broke up in 1914, Brooks painted Rubinstein more often than any other subject: for Brooks, Rubinstein's "fragile and androgynous beauty" represented an aesthetic ideal.
