      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.

      Parisian Time Capsule ~ After suddenly fleeing to the South of France during WWII, Madame de Florian’s lavish Paris apartment was abandoned and locked up with all of her belongings in it. And there it all stayed, just how she left it, until her death in 2010. The painting is of Madame de Florian’s grandmother Marthe de Florian painted by her lover the artist Giovanni Boldini.
