  • In 2010 a woman died in the south of France at the age of 91.
    Soon experts were tasked with drawing up an inventory of her possessions and homed in on a flat in Paris. She had left this flat to the south just before the start of the Second World War and never returned. Entering the untouched, cobweb- filled flat in Paris’ 9th arrondissement, one expert said it was like stumbling into the castle of Sleeping Beauty, where time had stood still since 1900.
    He said his heart missed a beat when he caught sight of a stunning tableau of a woman in a pink muslin evening dress. The painting was by Giovanni Boldini and

  • the subject a beautiful french woman who turned out to be the artist’s former muse and whose granddaughter it was who had left the flat uninhabited for more than half a century. The muse was Marthe de Florian, an actress with a long list of ardent admirers, whose fervent love letters she kept wrapped neatly in ribbon and were still on the premises. Among the admirers was also Boldini.
    The starting price at the auction for the painting was €300,000 but it rocketed as ten bidders vyed for the historic work. Finally it went under the hammer for €2.1 million, a world record for the artist.
