Boldini + Espacio Miró – General Ticket

Boldini and late 19th-century spanish painting

From September 19th to January 12th, 2020

Giovanni Boldini (Ferrara, 1842-Paris, 1931) became one of the most important Italian portrait painters at the turn of the century. After definitively settling in Paris in 1871, throughout his life Boldini preserved a style based on his intuition of a moment and of movement, reflected by his rapid brushstrokes yet never losing sight of the subject’s figure and expression.
Alongside his work, the exhibition presents a selection of works from Spanish painters who were linked to him in one way or another, such as, among others, Mariano Fortuny, Raimundo de Madrazo, Joaquín Sorolla and Ignacio Zuloaga. A total of 120 selected works that accurately convey the spirit of the age.

Born in Ferrara in 1842, Giovanni Boldini became one of the most important Italian portraitists of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. He settled in Paris in 1871 where he was acknowledged as one of the leading painters in Montmartre, an area of the city that soon became the gathering point for much of the national and international bohemian world. Influenced from the time of his arrival in Paris by the work of Meissonier and Fortuny – although he never met the latter due to his early death – Boldini maintained a unique style throughout his career based on an intuition of the moment and on movement, conveyed through rapid brushstrokes but always maintaining a firm grasp on the figure and the specific nature of his sitters.

Alongside works by Boldini, the exhibition presents a selection of paintings by Spanish artists who established direct or indirect contact with him during the fin-de-siècle period. Mariano Fortuny and Raimundo de Madrazo are among the best known but there were others, and works by Román Ribera, early examples by Egusquiza and portraits by Joaquín Sorolla, Ramón Casas and Ignacio Zuloaga together constitute a representative display of the type of painting produced in Paris at this period.

Located mid-way between tradition and innovation, the 120 works selected for this exhibition offer a faithful reflection of the entire spirit of an age.
