Dimensions of the canvas: 57 x 45 cm Dimensions with its frame: 70 x 59 cm Note: Freely inspired by the work of Jean-Jacques HENNER "Fabiola" - 1885. >> More informations We know very little many things about Léontine Lemée, except that she was a Parisian painter, active in the 19th century. This portrait of a red-haired woman in a red drape, flamboyant, specific to the artist and to be compared to the most famous original canvas by Jean-Jacques Henner "Fabiola". Made in 1885, the original canvas represents Saint Fabiola, whose cult is still celebrated today, especially in Latin America, veiled in red unlike this reinterpretation by Léontine Lemée. The original Henner canvas has unfortunately disappeared. In a fire, in the lair of a collector, we ignore it but the painting continues to inspire antique dealers and other treasure hunters around the world.
