Artist’s Resale Right (“Droit de Suite”). Artist’s Resale Right Regulations 2006 apply to this lot, the buyer agrees to pay us an amount equal to the resale royalty provided for in those Regulations, and we undertake to the buyer to pay such amount to the artist’s collection agent.
Delphin Enjolras studied under Jean-Léon Gérôme at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts, Paris. He soon realised that he excelled at painting female figures in calm, contemporary affluent interiors, imbued with a soft light. In the present lot this characteristic muted lighting welcomes us into a grand interior and into the card game itself.
