Extract from Le Monde newspaper 27th May 2016

The Institut Restellini, undertaking a catalogue raisonné of the painter’s works, has given its verdict: the sitter in the painting is Georges Menier. This famous manufacturer,
the eldest of the fourth generation of well-known chocolate makers, mayor of Lognes (Seine-et-Marne) for thirty years and acknowledged composer, frequented the artistic elite in Paris.
Art historian Marc Restellini confirms that he found traces related to the painting in the Menier Archive in the Musée d’Orsay and according to the memories of the wife of Modigliani’s last dealer,
Anna Zborowska.
James Palmer, the famous investigator of looted artworks behind the legal proceedings, specifies “Philippe Maestracci confirmed to us that his grandfather Oscar Stettiner was friends with Georges Menier”.
A further point is that Modigliani painted a portrait of Simonne Menier, Georges’ wife, in 1919. It is therefore highly likely that the two paintings, of Georges, believed to date back to 1918, and of Simonne,
were painted around the same time.
