Anna de Noailles – Poetess

As I explored the Jacques-Émile Blanche exhibit at the Fondation Pierre Bergé-Yves Saint Laurent last year in Paris, Sir Coleridge Kennard wasn’t the only character I was drawn to. Wandering the rooms of the gallery, I was amazed at Blanche’s ability to capture mood and personality in his work.

Anna de Noailles pulled me in.

Comtesse de Noailles was born in Paris, and started her career as a poetess in the early 1900s. She was part of Blanche’s social circle – Cocteau, Colette and Proust amongst her friends.


There’s lots of wonderful information, along with translations of her poems at
