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.
Awesome site that allows you to choose your rooms paint color and then displays the painting on that wall. Brings the painting you choose into perspective. I love this feature!
So happy with my purchase! It looks great, came very quickly and without any issue. Very happy with my first purchase from Overstock Art!
I ordered The Kiss for my wife and she absolutely loves it. The Luxury Line version on this painting has the additional textures and depth which really bring this painting to life. The website recommended frames that would match the painting and their choice was spot on. Very happy with my purchase!
Dance at Bougival is one of my favorite Renoir paintings. I had a cheap print but this one on canvas gives me so much joy. I just love it!
