Sitter in 16 portraits
Singer and actress. Delysia began as a chorus girl at the Moulin Rouge in Paris, but it was in London that she gained her greatest success in a series of revues produced by C.B. Cochran, including As You Were (1918) in which she sang 'If You Could Care For Me' and On With The Dance (1924) in which she introduced Noël Coward's 'Poor Little Rich Girl'. At the Gaiety Theatre she was the worldly-wise actress in Mother Of Pearl (1933).
