Liane De Pougy

Liane de Pougy (born Anne-Marie de Chassaigne) was a Parisian high class courtesan, who one day caught the eye of young Natalie Barney who was accompanying her mother as she studied portrait painting at a studio. De Pougy's clients were men though she was a lesbian and took women as lovers. Barney was interrupted from pursuing de Pougy by an unexpected request from her father to return to the US, but she did return to Paris and successfully seduced de Pougy.
