    LITERATURE
    M. G. Dortu, Toulouse-Lautrec et son Oeuvre, vol.VI, New York, 1971, no.D.4.237 (illustrated p.739).

    A sociétaire of the Comédie-Française, Mademoiselle Marsy was 'noted as much for her escapades as for her talent and beauty' (The Mataura Ensign, issue 148, 11 June 1896, p.6). The actress came to Toulouse-Lautrec's attention when testifying in favour of the late millionaire, Max Lebaudy, at the Lebaudy Trial of 1896, which investigated his sudden bankruptcy and attempted desertion from the military. The society scandal inspired the artist to create a series of prints and sketches on the subject, the best-known entitled Procès Lebaudy - Déposition de Mademoiselle Marsy.
