Detailed description

"Le drame aérien des Açores , il y a plus d'un an maintenant, a privé Paris de l'un de ses derniers « dandies », Bernard Boutet de Monvel. « Beau de visage et de stature, viril et racé, d'allure fière et courtoise, dit un de se amis, il était un peu froid mais généreux, délicat, bon et fidèle en amitié ». Très spirituel, il stigmatisait de son ironie légère le pédantisme, le bluff, le mensonge, les ambition vulgaires, le débraillé, qu'il détestait. Resté spectateur d'un monde qui ne fait plus de place à ceux qui ne participent pas à sa frénésie, enfant choyé d'une société, il en fut le peintre discret et serein..." Marie Pellé (extrait d'un texte de 2 pages sur l'élégance, joint à ce portrait).

"Air tragedy of the Azores, there are more than a year now, deprived Paris of one of his last" dandies "Bernard Boutet de Monvel." Beau's face and stature, manly and elegant, with proud and courteous, said to a friend, it was a bit cold but generous, gentle, good and loyal friend. "Very witty, he stigmatized its light irony pedantry, bluffing, lying, vulgar ambition, the scruffy, he hated. Remained viewer to a world that more than makes up for those who do not participate in its frenzy, pampered child of a company, he was the quiet and serene painter ... "Marie Pelle (from a text 2 pages on elegance, combined with the portrait)
