The painting depicts an evening scene featuring Yvette, Elisabeth and Nenette Chaplin. Dated 1912, it was presented together with additional works by Chaplin during a Florentine exhibit. At its presentation the series received the Gold Medal and ample acclaim from critics for the 20-year-old artist. The AWA restoration, led by the Modern Art Gallery’s director Dr. Simonella Condemi and vice director Alessandra Griffo, was carried out by Florentine restoration artist Rossella Lari.
