"Canvas XIXth: "the Nice Spanish""How can we not think of seeing this picture at "Blue skirt and falling nat, it is called Micaëla"? The young bride of Don Jose who will be eclipsed by his rival Carmen in the opera of the same name (yes, I know, I could have put eponym, but now that everyone uses it, it amuses me less ...) . This canvas of charm 65 X 49 cm approximately was realized in the second third of the XIXth century, philhispanic period very marked in France of which the apogee is reached during the reign of Eugénie de Montijo, the wife of Napoleon III. Very cracked, but well fixed, it does not hinder reading except and light grazing! Two old restorations, well made, more recent frame 74 X 58 cm.
