A Rich Woman Abandoned This Apartment In 1942. What They Just Found Inside Is Incredible.

The property was found near a church in the 9th district of the French capital, between the red-light district of Pigalle and Opera.

Experts have been hired to make an inventory of her possessions. They also found a painting by the 19th century Italian artist Giovanni Boldini which is very precious. An expert said that it was like ‘stopping at Sleeping Beauty’s castle where time has stood still since 1900’. “There was a smell of old dust,” Olivier Choppin-Janvry said, who made the discovery.

This beautiful painting from the nineteenth century representing a woman turned out to be from the Italian painter Giovanni Boldini and raised no less than 2.1 million euros at an auction! The woman in the painting is probably the 24-year-old Marthe de Florian herself.
