Note on the provenance:
Born into the English branch of the Rothschild family but settled in France, Henri de Rothschild studied medicine and generously financed several hospitals, as well as the research of Pierre and Marie Curie. He was a winegrower, an entrepreneur, a playwright, a racing driver but above all, a philanthropist. Henri de Rothschild first lived in a sumptuous town house at 33 rue du Faubourg-Saint-Honoré, which he donated to the Société du Cercle de l'Union interalliée and which is still its seat, before moving into the château de la Muette, which he had built between 1912 and 1922 by the architect Lucien Hesse.
