Anyone having their portrait done by Madame d’Ora (1881–1963) could be confident they were lending themselves a touch of French elegance. Her sitters included writers such as Arthur Schnitzler, the composer Alban Berg, and the cultural critic Hermann Bahr. She also produced portraits of the Wiesenthal sisters and Anna Pavlova, action shots of the scandalous nude dancer Anita Berber, and likenesses of operetta star Fritzy Massary and of famous figures like Josephine Baker and Coco Chanel.
