From their arrival in Paris in 1922, the Crosbys led the life of rich expatriates. They were attracted to the bohemian lifestyle of the artists gathering in Montparnasse. They settled in an apartment at 12, Quai d’Orléans on Île St-Louis, and Polly donned her red bathing suit and rowed Harry down the river to the Place de la Concorde, where he walked the last few blocks to his office at the bank. Harry wore his dark business suit, formal hat, and carried his umbrella and briefcase. Caresse rowed home alone, and in her swim suit her generously endowed chest drew whistles, jeers, and waves from workmen. She later wrote that she thought the exercise was good for her breasts, and she enjoyed the attention.

‘Never no’ was the motto of Caresse Crosby (born Mary Phelps Jacob; April 20, 1892 – January 24, 1970) and is the title of a series of paintings inspired by her life. She was the inventor of the modern bra, but somehow that was only a minor detail in her extravagant life. She was a notorious figure in 1920s Paris, embracing the bohemian life with indulgences like booze, opium and wild parties. She was the patron to the literary Lost Generation, moved in the highest artistic circles (Dali, Picasso), owned a castle, but unfortunately her story has been largely forgotten.

She has a background in communications and combines her interest in people and their stories with her love for painting. In her work she focuses on telling lost or untold ‘herstories’ and often works on long-term projects where she thoroughly researches her subjects and in the process is inspired to create paintings that she uses to tell the stories of these women. Works by Schols are included in several corporate and museum collections.[/su_spoiler][su_spoiler title="ABOUT THE SERIES" icon="arrow"]Women have been making significant contributions to science for centuries and receiving little to no credit for their work. Project “Footeprint’ is inspired by the life of Eunice Foote (1819-1888) who discovered the heat-absorbing property of carbon dioxide and water vapor and she described and theorized the gradual warming of the Earth’s atmosphere in 1856 (!). She was the first to demonstrate what today we call the greenhouse effect. Three years later, the well-known Irish physicist John Tyndall published similar results demonstrating the greenhouse effects of certain gases, including carbonic acid. Presently, Tyndall’s work is widely accepted as the foundation of modern climate science, while Foote’s remains in obscurity. The reason? Women were practically excluded from the world of science in the name of their supposed natural inferiority. [/su_spoiler]
