Artwork Title: Mrs. Warren Pershing

Mrs. Warren Pershing

Bernard Boutet De Monvel

"Boutet de Monvel executed Mr. and Mrs. Pershing's portraits in 1938. Mrs. Pershing (née Muriel Bache Richards) was married to Francis Warren Pershing, the only son of General “Black Jack” Pershing. See lot 245 for a preparatory drawing (illustrated hereby). Cindy Sherman may have been inspired by it for her work Untitled #465 (cf. Stéphane-Jacques Addade, op. cit. p. 22)."
