LAUTREC'S GAME: "but de pied"

the number 5 is written twice:

1) the first time so obvious on the left edge of the paper 
at the position indicated by the tip of the shoe.

2) the second time it was hidden 
under the bow of the shirt to fool any Faker.

It is therefore as proof of authenticity?
Absolutely yes. A counterfeiter would have replicated the design by copying only the apparent number 5 on the left edge of the paper never thinking that there was a second confirmation number 5.  This design has a double confirmation of number 5, so it infers that it is genuine.


Umberto Jackim Barbera in 1996 he founded the family company Newtel Ltd, publishing house specialising in web surveys, photo-philological and multi-spectral techniques on works of art from Jewish treasure dispersion, by publishing the results in the book "Tabelaux retrouvés" edited on the anniversary of the Italy-Russia cultural cooperation (1911-2011).

The results of the spectral analysis showed that this is not an intaglio printing with inks, but painted a dimensions cm. 64x84 (initially stated that 64 x 96 cm, to fool any forgers) that was first-hand-painted with natural pigments. Its size is larger than reproductions in copperplate technique which have a size of cm. 40x30.

The paper was passed in first Roto-gravure machines drenched in cream of ilmenite, an experimental method of surface coating of the paper that would prove as an excellent fixative of natural pigments. After a hundred years the design remains intact and in original conditions perfect although illuminated by sunlight, not having undergone the oxidative process suffered from reproductions instead copperplate technique with inks which are forced to be exposed to glow due to their gradual deterioration. 

    The secret mineral : " ILMENITE "
The mineral ilmenite contains titanium oxide, a strong element of optical brightener property. The ilmenite, having unstable molecular bonds, allows you to extract titanium oxide with a simple empirical, known to painters since i860: there is the mineral ilmenite, fragmented into pieces, inside a cast iron box made by boiling a bed of charcoal (embers), pouring hydrochloric acid above and closes the cassette with its lid. The steam that is produced inside can be collected by condensation on the surface of the lid of the cassette, cast iron and later picked up and poured into a container in which dilute with thin oil, so as to create the "cream of ilmenite". This cream was used to moisten the first machine roller copperplate technique. This also prevented the paper underwent some surface creases when it had been plucked from the side washers and introduced into the printing process.

The ing. Michele Manzi, an Italian born in Ischia and graduated at the Politecnico di Torino, was the inventor of the copperplate. He moved to Paris and in Toulouse Lautrec to experiment with a new method of preparation and paper coating making it pass in first Roto-engraving machine without letting it introduce in the printing process, but out in order to let the appliance dry naturalistically, stretched out in the air, that would be perfectly coated paper, ready to be used for first-hand drawings : the "premiéres" (first) of the "affiches" (posters) that Lautrec loved to do in five series, of which the P1 No. 5 was evidently the last of the series and probably the best.

There are other minerals that contain titanium oxide, such as rutile, the Brokite and Anastasius. These minerals have stable ties, whereby the extraction of titanium oxide was made possible only after 1920, when it was invented the vacuum extraction method. The technicians who performed the multi-spectral analysis, they wanted to make a stratigraphy that highlights how the titanium oxide is evenly spread over the entire surface of the sheet, and then coated the passage on a roll steeped in cream of ilmenite.

Engineers, not knowing the use of ilmenite, demanded that had provided their evidence documenting that the artist Toulouse Lautrec was rather aware and use.

Fortunately, Henri de Toulouse Lautrec left, in its way, a testament to his knowledge, handing them down to posterity with the following two designs:

In the first drawing, 
the woman portrayed touch ... the "hymen"

In the second painting, 
women view the mineral "ilmenite" 
In the second drawing (below = she has a piece of ilmenite ore in hand and is sitting on a vertical scraper ("plan in the hymen"), where the word "plan" has the meaning of "table" or canvas): then the pun means that the ilmenite is on canvas, moreover confirmed by inscriptions on the deck where T = secret, and number 11 indicates the required amount of pieces of "ILMENITE" to skate a sheet of paper!!! 

The revelation on the deck !
T = the secret is the black stocking (chausette noir = c'est noir)
What is the black stone of ilmenite, which you should have 11 pieces :


The game would have been solved 
after a hundred years … 
thanks to the magic of the goddess ISIS, whose sign was represented by his son's eye Horos, left obvious painted with lipstick under the eye of friend Acrobat called Cha-U-Kao!

Cha-U-Kao, a sobriquet meaning "chabots et chaos" (hooves and noise), so was called the Acrobat who was friend of Goulue (the gourmet) and Mademoiselle Fromage (due to its strong odor of sweat), the latter designed in pink while Monsieur Thomas is leading to a first at the Paris Opéra. These references are of clear identification of the spiritual character of Toulouse Lautrec.

A Toulouse Lautrec opera "The Clowness" (the Acrobat ") is on display at the San Diego Museum, Baldwin Collection. The image of "Cha-U-Kao" has been used for numerous commercial reproductions (affiches):

The finding of the original design has concerned the former Director of the city of Torino, ing. Cesare Vaciago, who declare an interest in the Turin Museum to exhibit the pattern found in Italy has unnecessarily invited representatives of the "Comité Toulouse Lautrec".

The "Gossip":
The marriage was dissolved after 18 years.
Humbert finished in "Cha-U-Kao" (hooves and noise)
for having dissipated his family heritage in buying works of art.

On the other hand the "Comité Lautrec" (Gallery Wall Laurenceau in Paris, and Daniel Denvich of Albi's Museum) would probably prefer that the work passed the borders of France to exercise power of forfeiture, conferred on them by law still in force, Napoleonic according to a simple outburst of doubt about the authenticity of the same and without any obligation to prove their good faith and provide evidence of lack of authenticity.


The artist's nephew, the Comte de Toulouse Lautrec, Gullaume financier living in Switzerland in the year 2012 has acknowledged "authentic to 99%" this design found, leaving the expert Richard Loyd of Christie's auction house in London on 1% residual recognition. The latter hasn't dissolved its reserves were in turn referred to an unnamed colleague who are limited to examining a photograph by recognizing it as such, without releasing any reply written and illustrated an absolute disinterest in the marketing of his work. A unique case in the history of the famous auction house, it is a plan that in the year 2005 was valued at $ 15 million by the art expert dr. Roberto Crippa, President of brokerage firm d'Arte "Bank of Art" in Milan.
