Lot Essay

The present drawing cannot be related to any finished work by Plattemontagne, but it is probably a study for a portrait of an abbess. We are grateful to Frédérique Lanoë for having confirmed the attribution of the drawing from a photograph. For a similar study by the artist, please see the previous lot and, for a note on the collector, please see lot 163.
