Colette, the iconic French writer born in 1873 is known for novels including 'Gigi', 'Cheri' and 'Break of Day'. Colette was married to the celebrated Parisian wit Willy Gauthier-Villars. Willy, fourteen years older than his wife was one of the most notorious libertines in Paris. He introduced Colette into avant-garde intellectual and artistic circles, and while engaging in sexual affairs himself he also encouraged Colette’s own lesbian dalliances.
The couple separated in 1906, and Colette would go on to flourish as a writer, producing most of her most celebrated works in the subsequent decades. The multi-talented Frenchwoman, also a mime, an actress and a journalist, was nominated for the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1948.
