Nº 177 in D' Atri papers -as Portrait of Jeanne (the wife of the Artist) - dated 1918 - Nice - 91.5 x 60.5 - Provenance in Zborowski > Olaf Berg, Sweden 1929


Detail of signature in visible normal light:



This painting presents holes in the 4 corners all restored (covered)


Detail of the ears where the drawing is clearly visible and is painted over the color (on top of the color)


Marc Restellini extract from a report by him will give a deeper comprehension of the private expert way of working:


The ears: When they are left exposed in female portraits (rare), they are not detailed. Even in the portraits of men, they are not the object of so much detail.

Exactly the opposite to this case, the ears are full in details, as detailed as the eyes or the hair...
