Duse, Eleonora

(1858-1924)
   Italy's dominant actress of the generation following Adelaide Ristori, Duse made four American tours (1893, 1896, 1902, 1923-1924) with mixed success. She was noteworthy for her expressive hands and for her ability to portray various ages without the aid of makeup, which she never used. Along with a repertory of Italian plays, Duse was also a major disciple of the realistic dramas of Henrik Ibsen. She died in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, on 21 April 1924.
