An apartment discovered in Paris, after being left untouched for 70 years.
It was originally abandoned during world war 2, and the rent continued to be paid every month without fail until the death of the owner, the granddaughter of a Parisian socialite named Marthe de Florian.
The secret love story between Italian artist Giovanni Boldini and de Florian was revealed after the discovery of a painting by artist and the accompanying letter. The piece was estimated at a value of 2 million Euros.
Parisian interior of Frederic Mechiche: Jean Dubuffet black and white sculpture (c.1960s), other artworks by Joseph Beuys, Pierre Soulages and Cesar & Jean Arp. Barcelona-lounge chair by Mies van der Rohe (1928) and a coffee table by Isamu Noguchi (1944).
Trick or Treat to @kane-and-griffin who, just like me, can’t resist a good Agatha Christie style murder mystery, and by the most…frankly bizarre coincidence I have ever seen in my life, just a week after I started work on the art for this, posted the first chapter of her amazing fic, Something Wicked This Way Comes
I briefly considered doing something else to make it more of a surprise but…screw it, who doesn’t love a good 1920s murder mystery AU? :P Hope y’all enjoy!
