It was in the salon of her apartment in the Rue de Rome that Bernhardt posed for this painting by the artist Georges Clairin. Bernhardt appreciated the encouragement she received from Clairin in her own endeavors with painting, and the two became close. This portrait has been described as the “epitome of Romanticism” and is said to have inspired many women to commission similar works starring themselves.

Bernhardt’s enthusiasm appeared again when she decided to build a private home. She became deeply involved in the process, terrifying her friends by climbing on the scaffolding to dizzying heights and constantly offering advice to the carpenters, masons, and plasterers. The inside of the house was decorated with furnishings from the apartment, plus a flamboyant array of new acquisitions. Various artist friends painted some of the walls, with mixed results. Calling the house her “folly,” she blithely dismissed the enormous cost.

When extreme cold weather struck Paris in January of 1871, she ordered the props and the seats of the Odéon chopped up for firewood. People were starving in the streets. Dogs, cats, and animals at the zoo were used as food, and Bernhardt often gave her own rations to a hungry soldier. When the bombardment of Paris began on December 27, and the hospital flag on the Odéon became a target for Prussian gunners, she ordered the patients transferred to the cellars. When the cellars proved uninhabitable because of broken pipes and hungry rats, she sent the sickest patients to another hospital and rented an empty apartment, where she and Madame Guérard nursed the rest back to health.
