We would like to thank Brame & Lorenceau for confirming the authenticity of this work, which is included in their Archives on the artist.
Inscribed (possibly by the artist's hand) Mme Fantin Latour née V. Dubourg and Mme Victoria Dubourg (on the stretcher). Original unlined condition. The work presents beautifully, aside from a few pin dots of accretion and extremely faint craquelure in some of the more thickly painted flowers. Under UV: a heavy varnish fluoresces green. There are scattered old, finely applied retouches in the lower quadrants.
