Art Of Today | Valentina Cirasola | Interior Designer

Today, January 11th in 1931, in Paris, the great painter Giovanni Boldini died. He was born in Ferrara in 1842 and after having learned the rudiments of the trade from his father, a valid purist painter of the time., he moved to Florence, where he attended the Academy of Fine Arts and the Bohemian environment of the “Caffè Michelangiolo”. He soon became a skilled portrait painter and entered the circle of wealthy foreigners residing in Florence, meeting the Russian prince Antonio Demidoff who opened the doors of his gallery full of contemporary French works.

He was successful since the beginnings of his exhibition but he felt the need to broaden his horizons soon by undertaking various trips abroad. After having happily entered the high society of London, which got him many commissions, he decided to settle in Paris, where he became friends with Edgar Degas and also frequented the Impressionist environment, although he never joined the movement. Feeling strong by his talent and great technical ability, also knowing he could fit in the most wealthy and aristocratic Parisian environments, he soon established himself as a talented portrait painter and was considered one of the greatest successful artists of the “Belle Époque” period “. Thanks to his unmistakable vibrant and lively style, he was repeatedly invited to the “Venice Biennale” and also enjoyed international success in Belgium, Spain, Morocco, and the United States. In 1917 he almost completely lost his sight and after his life in London and Nice, he returned to live in Paris, where he died in 1931. At his testamentary request, he was buried in the Monumental Cemetery of the Certosa di Ferrara.

I like his interpretation of the cheerful feeling and spontaneous spirit of the Parisian Belle Époque.
He captured women in their youthful grace, as haute couture catwalk and gave us a glimpse into private, warm boudoirs.
