Catalogue Note

Daughter to John McPherson Berrien Connelly (1845-1905) and Grace Sterling King (1846-1875), Grace King Connelly (1875-1956) married Ugo Gregorini-Bingham (1869-1924) in 1894 in Paris. Their daughter, Grace Gregorini-Bingham, was born in 1896 in Bologna. Also known as "Minnie l'Italienne", she married Charles Louis, prince de Beauvau-Craon (1878-1942) in 1920. They had a son, Marc de Beauvau-Craon (1921-1982).

In our opinion, this charming portrait was executed by Boldini circa 1894, before Grace's wedding, in accordance with the usage.

We would like to thank Mr. Tiziano Panconi and the Museo archives Giovanni Boldini Macchiaioli, Pistoia, for kindly authenticating this work. A certificate will be delivered to the buyer (inventory number 2412).
