Modigliani, Soutine & Monparnasse d'après-guerre at the Pinacothèque, Paris
The Pinacothèque de Paris currently exhibits a private art collection, comprising a plethora of landscapes, nudes and still-lifes of irregular calibre, but way too few Modiglianis (although Elvira with her white lace collar is there; see picture for conclusive evidence!).
The real point of interest lay with the private collection of the Pinacothèque, displaying minor works by major artists.
I made a new acquaintance! Allow me to introduce Golden Age Dutch painter Gerrit van Honthorst, clearly evoking another of my persona very grata, Caravaggio.
