    discovered in a parisian apartment which was left 70 years ago: a painting by Giovanni Boldini, the subject a beautiful Frenchwoman (the artist’s former muse, the Grand-Mother of Madame de Florian). The painting was done in 1898 when Marthe de Florian was 24. The expert could not find any records of the painting, until they found a card with a scribbled love note from Boldini, the painting was sold for €2.1 million, a world record for the artist.
