Ida Rubinstein was a Russian ballerina, actress, patron and Belle Époque figure. She was orphaned at an early age and had, by the standard of Russian ballet, little formal training. Tutored by Mikhail Fokine, she made her debut in 1908 with a performance of Oscar Wilde's Salomé.
This photos has apparently made the rounds since 1987, credited as Oscar Wilde as Salome. Although he did write a play for this, in which Sarah Bernhardt was set to appear, this photo is actually of Hungarian opera singer Alice Guszalewicz. If you place this side by side with a photo of Oscar Wilde, the resemblance is uncanny!
