Henri Defreyn in drag as a geisha. Process print after G. Dupont, 19--.
M. Defreyn (Sarah Yacco). Phot. G. Dupont
Henri Defreyn performing a parody of Sada Yacco, geisha and actress. The extremely popular Japanese entertainer Sada Yacco had toured the world 1900-1903 and caused a sensation wherever she went. She seems to have been as much a favourite with the drag queens of the 1900s as Marlene Dietrich and Judy Garland were later in the century.
