Josephine Baker in Art.  No other African American is as synonymous with Paris as Josephine Baker.

First American-born female recipient of the Croix de guerre, the Rosette de la Résistance, and to be made a Chevalier of the Légion d'honneur France.  Josephine Baker (BORN JUNE 1906) was vaudeville star by age 15, and later an accomplished actress, international musical and political icon given such nicknames as the "Bronze Venus", the "Black Pearl", and the "Créole Goddess".  Her frequent appearances on stage with her diamond collared pet cheetah, Chiquita, further made her a legend in France.
