Boldini and Fashion

Ferrara / Palazzo dei Diamanti

from 16 February to 2 June 2019

The exhibition will therefore, for the first time, investigate the long and fruitful relationship between Boldini and the world of Parisian haute couture and the influences that this had on his portraiture as well as the work of painters such as Degas, Sargent, Whistler and Paul Helleu. Organized thematically, each section represented by writers who have sung of the greatness of fashion as an art form, from Baudelaire to Wilde, from Proust to D’Annunzio, the exhibition offers a fascinating journey through paintings, marvellous vintage clothing and iconic accessories that will show the relationship between art, fashion, and literature in the Belle Époque and which plunges the visitor into the sophisticated and sparkling atmosphere of the French capital and all its elegant hedonism.
