Catalogue Note

The present work was originally part of a larger canvas entitled Mme Bodenhausen et ses enfants (see R. Feltkamp, op. cit., no. 1910-021, illustrated p. 389). Luli grew up to be a great beauty and star, using the stage name Luli Deste after she moved to Hollywood, and starring in a number of movies including Thunder in the City with Edward G. Robinson in 1937.
