    Saleroom Notice

    Please note that the attribution in the printed catalogue should read: Circle of Jean Jacques Henner. The description should read: with signature and date 1856.

    Isabelle de Lannoy has kindly let us know that on the basis of a color photograph, she does not support the attribution to Henner. She has suggested an alternative attribution to Edouard Dubuffe (French, 1820-1883).

    Please note that this lot will be sold without reserve.
