Belle, I just love Boldini. He did two of my all time favourite portraits of all time of Luisa Cassati. Sa one of them in Rome last year and I was thunderstruck by the beauty of it.

Oh Belle, Thank you, I am very honoured, so glad you like the posts, keep finding more paintings to add to the first post, like a child in a sweet shop! Also now investigating the lives of the women he painted...funny how one thing leads to another.

David, perhaps I can't fully appreciate the work of Boldini. I just sort of see his paintings as John Singer Sargent on crack!

Dash, funny isn't it how one subject leads to another.
I can't wait to read about the women he painted.
