Join The Appraisers Association at The Lotos Club, where its rediscovery is told by Robert Simon, AAA -- art historian, art dealer, and former President of the Appraisers Association of America -- who helped establish the painting’s identity and shepherded it from obscurity to world-wide celebrity.
