Provenance

This sketch was part of the artist's research into the theme of happiness and was intended for a series of large scale oil paintings in the early 1930s. While it is not known if the sketch was eventually executed in oil, the sketch indicates the intended title and proportions. There is a similar, if not equivalent, large scale oil painting titled L'âge Heureux (Happy Age) currently in private hands. 

This lot is accompanied by a letter of authentication from Mr. Pierre Le Tan.
