Preserved Paris Apartment Discovered After 70 Years

Before the start of World War II, the owner of this apartment in Paris fled to the south of France. For reasons not entirely known, she never returned and the apartment remained untouched for 70 years.

In 2010 the owner passed away at the age of 91. Her executor discovered the apartment and a team was sent to investigate. What they found was astonishing. Under a thick layer of dust was a trove of turn-of-the-century objects including several paintings that were set aside for further analysis.

One painting in particular, a portrait of a lady in a pink dress (pictured below), would turn out to be an incredible find.

After analysis, the painting was discovered to be painted by 19th century Italian artist Giovanni Boldini. It turns out the woman in the pink muslin evening dress was his muse, an actress by the name of Marthe de Florian. In addition to Boldini, de Florian had a long list of admirers, including the 72nd Prime Minster of France, George Clemenceau.

The painting, which was completed in 1894, showed de Florian at the age of 24. What’s even more fascinating is that the owner of the apartment was actually the granddaughter of Marthe de Florian! After going to auction, the painting fetched a cool $3.4 million, a record price for the artist.

Its amazing how they found the paintings and they know who the girl is. The paining resembles unfaithfulness. Maybe that why it was lost.

Wow! It would be interesting to know more about the occupant and why she didn't return. And is that an **emu** in one pic?
