Collection of the artist

Thence by descent to Anne Sorine, the artist’s niece

Thence by descent to the present owner

The present lot is accompanied by an original black and white photograph of the sitter by the French photographer François Antoine Vizzavona (1876-1961; fig. 1). Vizzavona, who had a studio on the rue du Bac, was a highly respected photographer of fine art who collaborated with numerous Parisian galleries between 1900 and 1915. He was also however hugely popular with the artists themselves because of the novel service he offered: he would visit them in their studios and photograph their models thereby allowing the artists to work from images and reducing the number of sittings required.
