Marc Restellini say there is no cardboard in Modigliani's oeuvre after 1915 and that everything done later in cardboard is fake but again he
informs that he will include this work in his CR even if its made in cardboard and dated by him in 1917?, a nonsense.

This extract from a report by him will give deeper comprehension of the private expert way of working:
4 / Study of support and technique
a) The cardboard as a support for the works of Amedeo Modigliani
Modigliani used cardboard as a medium for thirty works. In 1915, he made 14 works of this type, and this is the last year in which he uses this medium.
From 1916, Modigliani never uses this medium because it is supported by the merchants Paul Guillaume (whose personal collection was given to the French
State and is exposed at the Musée de l'Orangerie in Paris) and Leopold Zborowski. It is thus supplied in canvases by these merchants and therefore no longer
needs to use poor media such as cardboard.

This support does not exist at Modigliani after 1915.
