Louis-Albert Besnard, eldest son of the better-known painter, graphic artist and writer (Paul) Albert Besnard (1849 - Paris -1934), apparently dedicated this small portrait of Sarah Bernhardt (1844-1923) to the daughter-in-law of the famous French actress. 'Madame Maurice Bernhardt', née Princess Therese Jablonowska, was married to Sarah Bernhardt's only son, Maurice, and died in Paris in 1910 (cf. newspaper report 'Bernhardt's Daughter-in-law dead' in: The New York Dramatic Mirror, July 30, 1910).
