About

Study of Lucie (Ralph) Belin seated in an interior Graphite on paper, 1915 Signed with the estate stamp, Lugt 909b, the stamp faded from blue to brown (see photo) Provenance: Neffe-Degandt Fine Art, London was a major dealer in art of the Nabi in the late 1990's. Their label is on ther verso of the backing board. Provenance: estate of the artist Neffe-Degandt Fine Art, London (see label) Condition: The sheet very slightly age toned Upper left corner tip missing, as torn from the perforated sketchbook Image/sheet size: 6 5/8 x 4 7/16 inches Frame size: 12 1/2 x 10 1/8 inches Lucie Belin -- given the date and the overall appearance of the sitter I would also be inclined to say this is Lucie, though the hair color in the drawing makes me worry that it is someone with light hair, not dark. As you know he devoted a lot of his output in c. 1915 to images of Lucie when they were at the height of their affair, and even though the features are hard to discern, the coiffure, clothing, and her pose (see my scans for other images of her, including photos, with her hand on her hip and elbow out -- there is a confident jauntiness to her body language that accords with other images of her from the same period) all add up to a logical case for her being the subject here. However, once again, and sadly, I can find no exact match in the catalogue raisonne, and no finished work that appears to relate. Scans of nos. X-35-57 cover the Lucie Belin series. Cora Michael Appears to be the same coat as Lucie Belin's Smile, 1915, Salomon X-45 Couold be related to the painting Lucie Belin Sitting by a Stove, 1914-1015, Salomon X-35 " from 1915, when Edouard Vuillard was engaged in one of the most passionate affairs of his life - one which was reflected in a series of pictures of his lover, Lucie Belin, who also went by the surname 'Ralph'."
