Lot Essay

This work is sold with a photo-certificate from Fanny Guillon-Laffaille.

Please note that this gouache bore on the reverse La maison dans la forêt normande (Guillon-Laffaille no. 584). The recto and verso are fully independent works, and because the artist's paper was sufficiently thick, the two sides have been separated with the consent of Fanny Guillon-Laffaille.

Like Le Derby à Epsom (lot 431) and Le champ de courses à Epsom (lot 432), this work comes from the prestigious collection of the late Robert Sangster (see note to lot 431).
