Ottilie Ethel Leopoldine “Tilly” Losch (1907-75) – Austrian-born dancer, actress, painter (Albert C. Barnes bought one of her works), & femme fatale. Married Edward James, eccentric poet, collector, & patron of surrealists Dalí & Magritte, who founded a ballet company specifically for her. James would later file for divorce on the grounds that Losch had committed adultery with hotel executive Prince Serge Obelensky, to which Losch launched a failed countersuit stating that Edward was a homosexual.
