Rodin and the Cambodian Princess

In 1906, His Majesty King Sisowath brought the Royal Ballet of Cambodia to France. The dancers were under the direction of the King’s favourite daughter, Her Royal Highness Princess Sisowath Somphady (1865 – 193…). She really impressed everyone, especially the journalists. Rodin, himself, draws a portrait of the almighty princess.
