Le Cimetière de Vézelay, Yonne (89) #4: Rosalie Vetch | Rosalia Ścibor-Rylska

Rosalia Ścibor-Rylska, or Rosalie Vetch, is noted for being the mistress of Paul Claudel, and who inspired the characters Ysé in Partage de midi and Prouhèze in Le Soulier de satin. She was a great inspriation to Claudel, whom she met on a boat going from Marseille to China. Her husband Francis Vetch manipulated both of them.
