How can I buy a copy of this Annigoni work?

is a framed clipping from a magazine that dates back more than 30 years. The original is by Pietro Annigoni
, I believe. I am looking for a copy of the original that is better quality than a magazine clipping.

My dad, who cut it out of the magazine because it looks a bit like my mum, tells me that some of Annigoni's work was lost in a flood in Florence (possibly this one
in 1966*) some time ago and this work may have been lost then. I'm trying to track down a decent copy of the original of this exact picture, with a view to purchasing it and giving it to my dad. I do not know its name, nor the details of the original.
I have looked extensively on the internet for the picture, but to no avail. I can find similar
pictures by Annigoni
, and have looked at the Museo Annigoni
online. It is possible my google fu is not as strong as I hoped it was. Can anyone else find it and help make my dad's day?
My next step, if it can't be found, would be to contact the museum directly and ask them.
Bonus question: how do I write the email in Italian explaining my quandary?
*The magazine was possibly published after 1966.
