Photographic portrait of Colette and her two cats

n. d. [ca 1930] | Photograph: 27.4 x 20.7 cm | mount: 30 x 22.6 cm | one photograph mounted on card

An original photograph, contemporary silver print, mounted on card, showing Colette and her two cats.
Manuscript signature and address of the photographer to lower margin of photo: “G. L. Manuel Frères – 47 rue Dumont d'Urville”.

Signed autograph inscription from Colette to image: “Au colonel Guillaume, hommage de trois amis. Colette [for Colonel Guillaume, best wishes from three friends]”.
Louis Manuel took other portraits of Colette, to whom he was close, but none of the others are as intimate as the one offered for sale here. In it, she is
posing on her bed, her two cats held lovingly in her arms.
A very moving, large-format photograph 
with an amusing autograph inscription signed by the author, who loved cats so well.
