Romaine Brooks (May 1, 1874 – December 7, 1970)

Romaine Brooks was an American painter who worked mostly in Paris and Capri. The most important relationship of her life was with Natalie Clifford Barney, whom she met around the start of WW I. Barney was an American-born writer who hosted a literary salon in Paris. She was avowedly no monogamous; when they met, she was already in a close long-term relationship with Duchess Elisabeth de Gramont, which would last until the Duchess' death in 1954. Romaine had many other relationships of varying length and devotion as well but at one point, she gave Barney an ultimatum to choose between her and Dolly Wilde-relenting once Barney had given in. Her own lovers were Renata Borgatti, Marchesa Luisa Casati and Winnaretta Singer, Princesse Edmond de Polignac. Barney and Brooks are both buried at Cimetière de Passy, Paris, France, Barney in the same place with her sister Laura.
