    Jean Pierre


Agostina Segatori (Ancona, 1841 - Paris 1910) was a famous model who stood model for famous painters such as in Paris, France, for Dantan Joseph Édouard Jean-Baptiste Corot, van Gogh and Edouard Manet, and she was also known as the operator of the Café Tambourine in Paris. Info1

On 6 Oktober1873 gets a son, and called him Jean Pierre



Jean Pierre im Alter von ca. 12-14 Jahren

Jean Pierre, aged 12-14 years


According to the estimated age of the painting with Jean Pierre to about 12-14 years and his actual year of birth in 1873, the painting could have been seen time in 1887 at the exhibition in the café tambourine!

The estimation based on the age of the boy and the biographical references are therefore much more accurate than a pigment analysis, the + / usually - 15 years based sets. Without pigment analysis can be of the Year 1887 (+ / - 2-3 Years) out.

Due to the heavy craquelure (age cracks) and the patina of the painting, the parameters of visual perception and the biographical data of the determined period already agree strongly. Other facts for the authorship of Pierre-Auguste Renoir as a painter in particular his name in the beard of the painter in which he immortalized in Edouard Joseph Dantan. With the use of an infrared filter and the rotation of the painting at 90 ° to the right i saw a swing in the beard revealed the name Renoir. Contours were after the scientific knowledge Doc Moses about Renoir in the application of his drawings to a common goal, mind you unconsciously perpetuate.

The family portrayed here shows the operator of Cafe Tambourin, Agostina Segatori with your then husband, the famous painter Edouard Joseph Dantan 1848 - 1897, and their son, Jean Pierre.

In the well-known scene café frequented the most famous painters of that time. Agostina Segatori was in great demand as a painter and model, etc., was gladly taken of known quantities such as Edouard Manet, Camille Corot, van Gogh and Pierre-Auguste Renoir as a model.

The Café Tambourine also served as location for art exhibitions

Renoir definitely visited the Café Tambourine and was, like the other painter, known by the café operator Agostina Segatori, which was gladly taken by the famous painters of the elite as a model. Renoir introduced demonstrably of his paintings in the Café Tambourine, as you can very well see in a Newfound from Doc Moses during his research evidence.

Please enable comparisons of similarity with Camille Corot's depiction of Agostina including





 Agostina Segatori

The painting of Camille Corot shows Agostina Segatori with piercing eyes. Good to see the similarity of the characteristics from the display on the tambourine. One must not forget that the painters Corot and Renoir do not have the same style of painting, so that both portraits are logically not completely identical.



The Italian Girl Info3

This painting hangs in the National Gallery of Art in Washington DC and is titled "Italian Girl". On closer inspection realized that it would involve the model Agostina Segatori and should be called not only the "Italian Girl". The facial expression, the big earrings and pearl necklace, which Agostina in other paintings by Camille Corot and Edouard Manet and Renoir has carried, speak a unique language for the painters model and operator of the Café Tambourine, Agostina Segatori.

Edouard Manet, it adds even more detail to the point by painting Agostina Segatori in your coffee house gap with the typical headgear, the classic ear rings and pearl necklace. The falling in the face fringed hair and facial expression show the café operator, probably at Cafe Tambourin. Although Renoir and Manet often painted the same scenes and people, we must not forget however, that there is no direct comparison is possible because two different painters, but then with their different styles of painting, were at work.




Both Manet and Renoir had to put their easels side by side and painted the same scene

Agostina Segatori was known for their relationship in the spring of 1887, Vincent Van Gogh, who lived in Paris from 1886. Until 1888 Unfortunately, there is little information about this relationship as Vincent Van Gogh at the time with his brother lived there, very little of his correspondence from this period. However, Agostina Segatori was quoted in two letters of the painter. Information about the relationship found by one of the closest friends Vincent Van Gogh, the painter Émile Bernard in a letter to Pere Tanguy, Paris, which is an important representative of the 19 Century. It seems that Vincent van Gogh was very impressed by Agostina Segatori, and they in turn inspired the painter and he painted two portraits of her, and some of the acts. Agostina Segatori was Vincent Van Gogh's first exhibition in her café tambourine. Their relationship was stormy and they quickly decided in mutual agreement to separate in July, 1887.

Renoir identified!

After the painting was examined for indications of the possible origin of the painter Renoir me with special filters, another sensational discovery was made ​​that just the attribution of the painting to the author Pierre-Auguste Renoir (1841 - 1919) allowed.

As usual, I began to look for the typical small features Renoir's when i put the complete foto in his software. It's one of those moments that you can not really understand what is going on, if it comes to an input. Anyway, then the totally unexpected happened which led to a big surprise and this little weak signature of the little could be seen placed in the shade.



Renoir's name in the beard

Upon rotation of the photo file of the painting at 90 ° to the right of the incident momentum in the beard is clearly visible. Doc Moses was already drilled out quickly realize after years of scientific work irregularities. With the software as a weapon special photo filters, the ammunition of the light, i finally could see the name Renoir at the facial contour the beard of the painter Dante along. The signature that was integrated into the beard was so great, that it was surprised not to have known this fact beforehand.

After this discovery of such a large signature of Renoir was unnecessary for further research.
