Not in D' Atri papers?


I have never seen this painting live or in a good quality reproduction


Patani in Catalogo Generale, Leonardo, Milano, 1991-94, p. 19 present this work as example of forgery, no proof of any kind, just his only opinion
(in his text there is no explanation of why he say yes or no to anaything, just his opinion)

Patani had a fight with Jeanne Modigliani and since Lanthemann was the face used by Jeanne to present her choices, there is not a single mention
t o Lanthemann catalogue all over the Patani CR. and rarely a few to Jeanne Modigliani.

In Patani's terms that catalogue ( Lanthemann catalogue) was never published.

This work false or not, I have NO IDEA was only presented by Lanthemann.
