an unknown portrait of Lantelme

And a big surprise: a portrait of Lantelme, painted by Dutch painter Antoon van Welie in 1911.

It’s also called Elegante et son chien (see measurements and b/w photo here), and some people identified it as a portrait of Gaby Deslys, but it’s Lantelme, with her little dog and blue hortensias she loved.
