I'd say ask @330CK but hopefully he's way the hell out of town by now.

Nah I'm stickin it out. Lost power about 2 hours ago so I'm not gonna kill my battery researching the painting right now. The painting doesn't strike me as very old, though, since there doesn't appear to be too much age on the stretcher.

Berlioz was an interesting composer btw. He started experimenting with drugs and wrote some really fantastic pieces.

Not trying to be a downer but I think with a $10k price tag I would guess it's a fairly low percentage of vincuna. Still a baller jacket don't get me wrong.
YSL Rive Gauche Ethrift came, perfect fit.'way cooler than I was expecting. Asymmetrical zip and had moto style zippers in sleeves. Keeper

Stretcher no but the canvass is pretty dark in back.
And the stretcher is securely home made.
I think Double00 is right it's from the cubism era so around 1900 nut before WW1 and that's the hood where cubism started according to Wiki.
I may be on to something.
Maybe .

AHHHHHHHHHHHH

 

post #46552 of 60210

honesty it looks a lot like the style of Maurice Utrillo (a Montmartre native and contemporary with cubists but perhaps not altogether cubism). google some of his images you'll see what i mean (i often see utrillo prints fwiw)

 

so one thought is that it could be 'after Utrillo' or some such. the problem with that is that the house was demolished during wwi, so if it is a newer work based on an older work what is the original? 

 

so i'm not trying to say one way or the other, but that's how i start to think about this kind of research. good luck!

Screw that... I haven't "lost power" in over 10 years. Best investment EVER!

Not only did I know when it was sold (2 weeks ago at their Kiton trunk show), but that it was a special order and the $10,500 price tag is legitimate. I am waiting for confirmation from Kiton regarding composition, but I'm presuming fairly good percentage (of vicuña).

So yeah, without adieu here are the pics, first of the Kiton trunk show (Bloor Street store in downtown TO, scroll down: http://www.harryrosen.com/store-events):




Proof I won it for $253 plus tax:































HOLY.
