Catalogue entry

Joan González 1868-1908

T01665 La Jolie Parisienne (A Pretty Parisian) c.1902-3

Not inscribed
Black pastel on paper, 12 7/8 x 10 (32.6 x 25.3)
Presented by Roberta González 1972
Repr: Vicente Aguilera Cerni, Julio Joan Roberta González: Itinerario de una Dinastía (Barcelona 1973), pl.322 (dated c.1905)

Apparently made at the same time as two similar pastels reproduced by Cerni, pl.318 and Pierre Descargues, Joan González (Paris 1971), p.27 which are variants on the same theme, with different arrangements of the skirt and other minor changes; the one reproduced by Descargues is particularly close.

[See note on T01645.]
