Catalogue Note

Painted circa 1904. The 'Bardac' cited in the provenance may refer to Emma Bardac, whom Boldini painted in 1905. Married to the Paris banker Sigismond Bardac at the age of 17, Emma Bardac was a noted singer who had affairs with composers Fauré and subsequently Debussy, whom she married in 1908.
