Granier (1852-1939), was a renowned French actress and opera singer at the
turn of the century. In "My lives and Loves" the infamous author Frank
Harris tells of a memorable evening in which she entertained a party including
himself, Randolph Churchill and Edward, Prince of Wales.
Granier illustrated for
"Le Rire" by Cappiello. For
"Les Contemporains Celebres, was published
by Lefrevre-Utile (famed Biscuit producer) containing portraits...some of Cappiello's
finest caricatures of contemporary celebrities" (Rennert,
"Published by Lefevre-Utile and Octave Beauchamp,
Paris, and distributed by G. de Malherbe, containing portraits, biographies, signed
testimonials and some of Cappiello's finest caricatures of contemporary celebrities.
You might be asking yourself just what do Sarah Bernhardt, Anatole France, Rejane,
Granier, Massenet, Bartholdi and the Queen of Madagascar have in common? The answer
is quite simple: They all love Lefevre-Utile biscuits, of course" (Rennert,
