A mysterious painting
In 1971, Jacqueline du Pasquier, director of the musée des Arts décoratifs of Bordeaux, bought in a public sale, to complete the Jeanvrot’s collection, a painting titled “the duchess of Berry leaving for the exile. From the boat on which she embarked, she looks at the ground of France which becomes blurred on the horizon (August 1830)”. This great work of art keeps a part of mystery: if its subject seems established well - in spite of some incoherence - his author, its execution date and the person who commissioned it remain unknown. The investigation is not thus closed.
The painting is located in the Salle de la duchesse de Berry, on the ground floor of the museum
