  • Additional Information

'La Liseuse’ is a 19th century pastel portrait attributed to the French Impressionist painter Eva Gonzalès (1847-1885). It is presented in fine, period water gilded frame.

The portrait comes directly from the deceased estate of a French art dealer and has long been thought to be a work by Gonzalés. It was purchased by him in Rome in the 1980s from a collector who, in lieu of payment, requested that a donation be made to the Pasteur Institute of Paris.
