Manner of Thomas Couture (French, 1815-1879) so designated by Sotheby's. London, November 24, 1983,Lot 555.
Original works of Thomas Couture have sold for up to $182,500.00. Several very astute collectors have been suggesting it is actually an original by Couture. If it was, it would be worth thousands of dollars. It is a beautiful work, and certainly quite appealing, regardless of whether it is a Couture or not.

Title: "Portrait of a Lady with a Chignon"

Medium: Charcoal on paper.

Size: 11 by 8 5/8 inches (27.9 x 21.9 cm).

PROVENANCE: Sotheby's, London, November 24, 1983, lot 555.
Private collection, Japan.

Condition: Sheet is attached to window mount along extreme edges, but verso of work is still visible due to window; there appears to be light overall paper discoloration with faint matburn and a few spots of foxing; a tiny abrasion near lower left edge; handling creases; framed under glass.

Couture, Thomas is often remembered for "The Romans of the Decadence," the sensation of the 1847 Salon that is now often cited as a classic example of bombastic academic painting. His informal works are more lively and he encouraged his students to directly study from landscape.
