Notes: “Femme assise, en robe bleue is characteristic of Metzinger’s later works, which often feature attractive female subjects against a graphic and colorful interior. […]

Philanthropist Evelyn Annenberg Hall was a devoted patron of the arts for more than fifty years, first joining The Museum of Modern Art’s International Art Council in 1970. Together with her second husband, William Jaffe, she assembled an impressive collection of Impressionist and Modern works by artists such as Metzinger, Pierre Bonnard, Pablo Picasso, Joan Miró and Edouard Vuillard, many of which were gifted to the MoMA. The Halls’ vast collection also included European paintings, Chinese porcelain, pre-Columbian artifacts and Renaissance drawings. Mrs. Hall was a sister of the publishing magnate Walter H. Annenberg, whose personal collection of Impressionist and Modern art was donated to the Metropolitan Museum of Art upon his passing in 2002.” (Excerpt from Christie’s 7 May 2009 Lot Essay)
