PARIS: Juliette Greco, a French singer, actress, cultural icon and muse to existentialist philosophers of the countrys post-War period, has died aged 93, French media said Wednesday.

They said Greco died in her Ramatuelle house in the south of France, near Saint Tropez.

The mayor of Nice, Christian Estrosi, tweeted that a very grand lady, an immense artist has gone.

With expressive eyes inherited from her Greek ancestors and an impossibly deep, raspy voice — acquired from years of cigarette-smoking — Greco immortalized some of Frances most recognizable songs in an enduring seven-decade career, including the classics Soul le ciel de Paris (Under the Parisian sky) and Je hais les dimanches (I hate Sundays).

Greco was born in Montpellier on February 7, 1927, and went on to become a French music and fashion icon whose bobbed hair, Cleopatra-style eye-lines and demure black clothes became synonymous with the rebellious 1960s.

In March, 2016, Greco suffered a stroke while she was stopping off in Lyon as part of her tour, and cancelled the rest of her concerts. It was the same year that her only daughter, Laurence-Marie, died, of cancer.
