Giovanni Boldini, despite being born and buried in Ferrara, Italy, rose to prominence in England and France. After receiving a small amount of training in Florence, he traveled to London. He transitioned from some of his earlier paintings of landscapes into a career portraitist, painting the likenesses of some of London's most prominent people. This reputation only grew after his move to Paris. His long, flowing, and expressive brush strokes are emotive and free.
Boldini came to know, paint, and be painted by some of the other great artists of the day. He painted James McNeill Whistler, John Singer Sargent, Edgar Degas, Paul-César Helleu, and more. Many of his other subjects were extremely wealthy and equally eccentric, with one woman keeping pet cheetahs and wearing snakes as jewelry. As he aged, he would return to studying landscapes somewhat as well as painting mostly nudes of young women of his own volition, rather than commissioned portraits.
Quality customer service is key to customer satisfaction. Overstock.art is a shining example of this. They resolved my issue beyond what I expected and I am a very happy customer. My painting is beyond beautiful, too! I'll order from them again!
We received two of the three pieces and are truly impressed. The frames are beautiful and well-made. We had an issue with a coupon and overstockArt.com was accommodating and resolved the matter immediately. We look forward to receiving our third piece and will definitely use this website in the future!
LOVE overstockArt! They have TONS of choices in artwork and frames, they are fast, they are beautiful! I only wish I'd discovered them SOONER! You will not be disappointed!
Art was delivered faster than expected. The paintings and frames were just as described on the website. They were packaged well for shipping. Awesome Job! Very nice quality.
The artwork by Modigliani, Manet and Munch looked fantastic. Very happy customer. Thank you so much.
I have bought several works that were reproduced by overstockArt and was happy with all of them. The Klimts were amazing in detail and texture. They all came with the proper hanging screws, as I got them all pre-framed. For quality at a reasonable price overstockArt is the way to go!
I don't normally buy prints but took a chance on this and I absolutely LOVE it! It's hanging in an area filled with oil paintings and it still stands out as a star!
Highly recommend this if you are looking for something fun and cheerful to brighten up a space. I just love it!
I have purchased 3 handmade oil paintings from overstockArt and have had extremely positive results with each transaction. The products are breathtakingly gorgeous and they are packaged with a high attention to detail so as to not be ruined during and upon transit. The customer service is very quick to respond to questions and problems with orders via internet.
We own 5 paintings, Monets, Klimts...They are all very well done, just beautiful. Also the people who work at overstockArt.com are just terrific to deal with. It's so nice to talk to someone who is pleasant and knows what they are doing!
