It was rolled over a wardrobe for several years. The discovery of this sketch made of charcoal is a real miracle. His owner, who lies with manos, in the Alpes-de-Haute-Provence, has fallen off the nakes when she learned of her value.

A real Matisse!

A year ago, the house of sale Ivoire Manosque receives a visit to a resident of the municipality which has a doubt about the origin of a drawing of which it has inherited several years ago. He is signed Henri Matisse but this lady think it's a reproduction. After a year of expertise, it turns out that this portrait has been drawn from the hand of the master of Fauvism. Jennifer Primpied-Rolland, auctioneer, announces the good news to his owner. "I made a little cautious estimate to house it. I thought she was going to faint when he heard that amount she did not expect," she remembers.

The sketch of a Russian princess

This formidable discovery allowed to know a little more about this drawing of a very high quality that had disappeared since its exhibition at the Philadelphia Museum of Art (United States) in 1948.

It is a sketch of a portrait of Hélène Mercier, a Russian princess that was, at the time, one of the favorite models of the painter. Directed in 1938, this sketch probably served as a draft chart the song ordered by the rich New York businessman Nelson Rockefeller.
