Summary
"Distinguished by his brilliantly energetic brushwork, Giovanni Boldini (1842-1931) was one of the most prominent Italian artists of the late nineteenth century. Still, he has remained little known beyond his native country. Giovanni Boldini in Impressionist Paris is the only publication on Boldini in English in a generation and accompanies the first major exhibition of his works outside of Europe." "Born in Ferrara, Boldini moved to Paris in 1871, where he lived for the remainder of his life. This important volume focuses on his work from 1871 to 1886, which reflects the influence of his contemporaries - Degas, Manet, Caillebotte, Meissonier, and Fortuny, among others. It features Boldini's fanciful paintings made for the art market and depictions of the city around him - from the bustling streets and squares to cafes, theaters, and concert halls - as well as paintings of friends and models, and a selection of later portraits that established him as one of the quintessential portraitists of the Belle Epoque."--BOOK JACKET
