    Thanks for all your great posts! For “Adolphe Martial Potémont – Musée Carnavalet P 264” there is a problem possibly with the dimensions you give. Either the dimensions are wrong, or the image shows only a part of the painting. I see that you copied the dimensions from Carnavalet, so the museum’s webpage of this painting has the same problem. Anyway, thanks again for your great work, which makes e.g. quite a few of Sotheby’s images look poor in comparison. Looking forward to your coming posts. Best wishes, Gerhard

    • Thank you! Indeed, something is wrong. I do not know how to correct that (the Joconde catalogue gives the same dimensions and the same image).
