Cléopatra Diane de Mérode was the first woman to dance with a male partner in the Russian Ballet. She continued to dance until her early fifties and was very popular in her ancestral homeland of Austria, where she befriended the artist Gustav Klimt. Cléo de Mérode retired to Biarritz and died in 1966 at age 91 and is entombed at Pere Lachaise Cemetery in Paris.

Jeanne Hébuterne... frequent subject and common-law wife of the artist Amedeo Modigliani. The day after Modigliani's death (1/24/1920), Jeanne, 20 years old and pregnant with their second child, jumped to her death from her parent's Paris apartment. 10 years later her parents finally let her be buried next to Modigliani in Pere Lachaise. Her epitaph reads "Devoted companion to the extreme sacrifice."

This is an extremely effective and intricate typographic design. The artist must have spent a lot of time finding words and phrases that describe Einstein and spent even more time arranging the text. I like that the artist just used black and white (and shades of grey) and the same font since the design already has so much to it. I love the detail of the design especially now such small strands of hair are words.
