This woman's portrait from the Edwardian era is so beautiful!
Dated 1913, it is French and signed L. Merat in the lower right
A charcoal drawing mixed with pencil, done on artist's paper, it has both realism and poetry and is absolutely irresistible!
The young lady's name is Cali Saché (written in pencil at the back) a name that sounds very much like an actress's name of the time.
Cali is a delightful brunette who wears her hair in the French plait, so fashionable at "La Belle Epoque"
She has a small, exquisite mouth and immense doe eyes.
This portrait is a perfection in the Edwardian style and will bring prestige and charm to any decor!
