In the south of France, in one of the houses in the department of Var, was found, presumably, a previously unknown drawing by the Fauvist artist Henri Matisse. How reports BFMTV, the job was discovered by auction appraiser Jennifer Premier-Rolland while inspecting the property during the registration of guardianship.

According to Premier-Rolland, the drawing was in a cardboard box, which lay “under a pile of garbage.” She added that it was a female portrait. Matisse’s signature is at work. Now the drawing is under examination.

Earlier, Jennifer Premier-Rolland had already found Matisse’s work – a sketch for a portrait of Ellen Mercier, born Princess Golitsyna. Last summer, the drawing was sold at auction for 220 thousand euros.
