The Petit Palais is devoting a major exhibition to the Italian artist Giovanni Boldini, whose last retrospective in France dates back more than sixty years.
The most Parisian of Italian artists
With a stunning exhibition, the Petit Palais pays tribute to the most Parisian of Italian artists, Giovanni Boldini, painter of a Proustian world. The virtuoso portrait painter was one of the greatest glories of Paris at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries, as an attentive observer of the high society he admired and frequented. If he enjoys an indisputable notoriety in his native Italy, Giovanni Boldini deserves to be remembered in memory of this Paris which he made his home port: a task which the Petit Palais has acquitted itself marvelously.
150 works from international museums
An evocative and immersive scenography accompanies a rich journey of 150 works combining paintings, drawings, engravings, costumes and fashion accessories on loan from international museums such as the Giovanni Boldini Museum in Ferrara, the Museo di Capodimonte in Naples, the National Portrait Gallery in London , the Musée d’Orsay, the Palais Galliera, the MAD among many others and many private collections. Through the work of Boldini, the exhibition invites the public to relive the pleasures of the Belle Époque and the effervescence of a capital at the forefront of modernity.
