The owner of the apartment had left the south of France on the eve of World War II and did not return. But when she passed away recently at the age of 91, experts were tasked to conduct an inventory of its assets. They broke into the Paris apartment. Entering the untouched, overgrown with cobwebs home in the 9th district of Paris, one of the experts said that it was like that stumble upon the castle of Sleeping Beauty, where time has stopped its pace since 1900.




"There was a smell of old dust" - said Olivier Chopin genres (Olivier Choppin-Janvry), who made the discovery. Strolling under the high wooden ceilings, past old wooden and stone washbasin dryer in the kitchen, he came across a prewar stuffed ostrich and a toy Mickey Mouse, as well as a unique dressing table.

However, according to experts, his heart sank when he saw a picture of a stunning woman in pink muslin evening dress. The painting belonged to the pen of Boldini, and the woman in the picture - a beautiful Frenchwoman, who, as it turned out, was the muse of the artist and that her granddaughter had left the apartment empty for more than half a century ago.



Muse named Marta de Florian (Marthe de Florian) - actress, who has had many ardent fans. Their ardent love letters she kept neatly tied with a ribbon, and they were still in the apartment. Among her admirers was the 72th Prime Minister of France Klemenko George (George Clemenceau), and Boldini.
