Catalogue Note

In this watercolour, Schwabe takes another look at one recurrent theme in his oeuvre : the stairs of life. The girl’s face seems inspired by the artist’s daughter, Charlotte (1891-1979). From 1907, Schwabe signs Schwab, sometimes preceded by the initial O, from the first name of his second partner and then wife, Ombra d’Ornhjelm.

 We would like to thank Monsieur Jean-David Jumeau-Lafond for kindly authenticating this work. A letter of authentication dated 12 november 2018 will be delivered to the purchaser.
