Boldini at His Best!

He is an artist who was in demand...his portraits of women were quite fashionable and sensual for the era.  He painted many famous women, among them the fabled Marchesa Luisa Casati.  She was notorious, eccentric and a celebrity, setting trends among the beau monde.  This is Marchesa with her grayhounds.



...and one of my favorites, painted by Giovani Boldini,
La Femme en Rouge.

The test of time...."great" art is relevant beyond the time of its creation.
