Hello everybody,
Correct me if I'am not in the right news group, but I'am looking 
for information about
General RATHAY who was the chief of American forces in south 
East of France until February 1946.
Any url, news groups  or adresses of organism which I could 
contact to have information would be appreciated. In fact I'am 
doing a catalogue of the French Provencal Painter named
Seyssaud, nothing to deal which military stuff, except that 
the French governement offered to General RATHAY, 
when he went back to america in 1946, one of his picture. 
I would like to have information of this picture because of its 
dimensions which are not usual for this painter. 
Who own it ? The family of General RATHAY ? A museum ?
An american organism ? I'am loking for a good colored photo of it, 
exact dimensions...
You can see a black and white photo of General RATHAY, with the 
picture and the painter,  in 1946, at this url :

Thanks in advance for all informations.
PS: Could you send a copy of any answer directly to my adress.

Guillaume BONNICI Home'S Page : Looking for informations on a SEYSSAUD picture.

Pour la constitution d'un catalogue raisonnÚ de l'oeuvre du peintre provencal SEYSSAUD, je recherche des informations sur le tableau suivant, offert par le gouvernement Franšais, pour bons et loyaux services, au General RATHAY, chef des forces Americaines dans la region sud-est, lorsqu'il est retournÚ aux Etats-Unis en 1946.

General RATHAY was the chief of American forces in south East of France until February 1946.

The French governement offered to General RATHAY (at left on the photo), this picture of SEYSSAUD painter (at right on the photo) when he went back to America in 1946.

I would like to have information of this picture because of its dimensions which are not usual for this painter.
This is for a future catalogue of the French Provencal Painter named SEYSSAUD.

Who own this picture today ?
The family of General RATHAY ?
A museum ?
An american organism ?

I'am loking for a good colored photo of it, and any infornations...
Any url, news groups  or adresses of organism which I could contact to have information would be appreciated.
