New Ingres?

Picture: The Art Tribune
The Art Tribune reports a new Ingres discovery, a version of his famous La Grande Odalisque. It's on view in Paris for the next few days; I do wish I could go! The Art Tribune is a reliable source with a record of scepticism on new attributions and it seems to have a good chance of being right. 

Ingres made a number of small versions of La Grande Odalisque, including one in Angers and another in the Wrightsman Collection that will perhaps find its way to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in due course (Jayne Wrightsman is of the Met's greatest patrons, and recently donated some Ingres drawings).
