Lot description
Portrait de jeune fille. Um 1876.
Charcoal drawing.
On delicate laid paper by "ED & Cie" (with watermark). 25 x 21,6 cm (9,8 x 8,5 in), size of sheet.

Accompanied by written expertise issued by Wildenstein Institute, Paris, dated 12 September, 2008.

Our portrait of a young girl is particularly captivating for the almost mystical light effect. Paul Gaugin took on the impressionistic inspirations from his painter colleagues in a very own manner, creating an almost sacral effect, which would also become obvious in later works. [DB/EH].
