George Henrik Breitner - FRENCH CUIRASSIERS
George Henrik Breitner
Oil on canvas. 54 x 65 cm.
G . H. Breitner.
The depiction of the work as well as the stamp on the reverse of the canvas, an address near the Montparnasse, might refer to a sojourn by Georg Hendrik Breitner in Paris in 1884: "COULEURS FINES / PAUL FOINET FILS / 21 RUE BREA".
We are grateful to Jan de Meere, Boutersen, for confirming the authenticity of the painting on the basis of a digital photograph.
