By the time Suzanne Valadon was 15 years old, she’s been a horse walker, a milliner’s assistant, a funeral wreath maker, and a circus acrobat (among other adventures). Then she became a sought-after model, painted by the greatest of the great. Her close friends included Degas, Renoir, and Toulouse-Lautrec. Paris celebrated her - until she decided to take up the brush herself at a time when art schools refused to accept female students.

Read the story of Suzanne, a bastard from the tenements who fought to be seen for herself, and Ellie, a modern woman a century later, at a crossroads of her life, who pulls Suzanne into the light from the shadows of the past.

“A touching and compelling story of two extraordinary women who lived a century apart but were sisters of the heart.”
