    There are only two styles of portrait painting; the serious and the smirk.
    —Charles Dickens (1812–1870)

    The others “acted” a role; I was the role. She who was Mary Garden died that it might live. That was my genius ... and my sacrifice. It drained off so much of me that by comparison my private life was empty. I could not give myself completely twice.
    Mary Garden (1874–1967)
