Abstract: We establish the existence of a real solution y(x, T) with no poles on the real line of the following fourth order analogue of the Painlevé I equation:

\[ \begin{equation*}x=Ty-\left(\case 1 6 y^3+\case{1}{24} (y_x^2+2yy_{xx}) +\case {1}{240} y_{xxxx}\right).\end{equation*} \]

This proves the existence part of a conjecture posed by Dubrovin. We obtain our result by proving the solvability of an associated Riemann–Hilbert problem through the approach of a vanishing lemma. In addition, by applying the Deift/Zhou steepest-descent method to this Riemann–Hilbert problem, we obtain the asymptotics for y(x, T) as x → ±∞.
