A rendition of Elisabeth as a little girl, newly restored.

Spotlighting Chaplin

AWA’s restoration sparked new interest in art by women. Here’s how. Pitti’s Modern Art Gallery in Florence followed AWA’s lead! According to gallery executives, the GAM’s decision to restore a bust portraying Elisabeth Chaplin as a little girl is the direct result of increased interest in the artist prompted by AWA’s restoration of Chaplin’s The Three Sisters. Created by the artist’s mother Marguerite Bavier-Chaffour, this marble rendition of the 4-year-old Elisabeth can be seen in Pitti’s Chaplin Room (room 27) which hosts over 15 of Chaplin’s colorful Nabis works.
