A fine portrait of a lovely young girl, oil on canvas, 14" by 10 1/2", unframed, signed at upper left by listed French artist MAURICE JACQUET (1877-). Jacquet seems to have painted mainly portraits of young women, but a few landscapes are known. This work has just been cleaned and relined, as when found it had a very dry blanched unstable surface, and some loss areas. Before lining, the restorer took photos of the canvas stencil on the reverse, which was of the house of Blanchet, 38 Rue Bonaparte, Paris. The painting likely dates to about 1905, when, according to internet information, this address was first known to be the location of the Blanchet art supplies business (it remained there, in that business, into the 1960's). Final photo shows photos of the back of the canvas before lining, showing the art supplier's stencil.
