Photographer's Note

In the North part of the churchyard of St. Nicolas' Church at Shoreham-by-sea, West Sussex, England is the grave of a Russian Princess. It is a neat sculptured figure in a niche of blue tessellated tiles. Lydia Yavorska was the Princess Bariatinsky who married an Englishman and died on the 3rd September 1921 after a career as an actress. An inscription states that she was ‘the youngest of the four great actresses of her generation: noble heart, lofty mind, burning soul, she devoted her life and gifts to the worship of beauty and the cause of freedom.’
