Orpheus1927 by Bernard Boutet De Monvel

"Probably executed circa 1927, this painting may have been a décor for Henri Bernstein's play, Le jour, which was being played in Paris in 1930. A watercolor project, where this painting is represented in the back, is included in the auction, lot 249." http://www.sothebys.com/en/auctions/ecatalogue/2016/collection-boutet-de-monvel-pf1639/lot.57.html
