I really dig this En Canot painting by Jean Metzinger. It is an oil on canvas cubist painting. It was done in 1913 and was exhibited several times before it was looted by the Nazis and later exhibited as Degenerate Art in 1938 and has not been seen since.
It is referred to in various publications as Femme à l’ombrelle, Im Boot, Le Canot, En Bâteau, In the Canoe, The Boat, On the Beach, Am Strand, Im Schiff, V Člunu and Im Kanu.
It is assumed to have been destroyed, however it could be in a private collection.
