Wisdom on Wednesdays—Who can feast without fasting?

CSF13234 - COLOR

A Christening Party at Chartres, oil on canvas, 1928.
After being shown at the 27th Carnegie International to critical acclaim, this painting was bought by the Pittsburgh Athletic Club in January 1929 for $1,500.  A search by the Carl Schmitt Foundation at the PAC was unsuccessful and the painting’s location remains unknown.  The owner of a companion painting, Dance of Life, Chartres, recently contacted the Foundation and is interested in selling the painting.

“Who can feast without fasting, who can enjoy kingship without servitude, and leisure without sacrifice?”  (1928)
