Boldini y la pintura española de fin de siglo

The magic of painting and portraits by the Italian painter Giovanni Boldini have inspired an exhibition that transmits love, tenderness and beauty. These qualities are brought to life in every stroke of the artist’s brush on the different canvases that will be showcased in this new exhibition in Madrid. Considered one of the best late 19th century portrait painters, Boldini moved to Madrid in 1871, filling the famous streets of the Montmartre neighbourhood with his beautiful artwork.
