We were out of the country and just saw one of Boldini's paintings at the Vanderbilt mansion. Are there more in the museum's collection?
Yes, we do. A portrait of Whistler, it is on this same floor close to the elevators.
Oh. I think I know that one. I love that painting.
Personally, I love Boldini's work and how his brushstrokes fan out at the edges.
There is always something about his portraits that make me want to gasp. This is my favorite.
It was also recently reinstalled (it was hanging on a staff floor for a time).
My lucky night! He looks so mischievous.
He does! The shape of the eyebrows really add to that sense. I love the brushwork on the back of the chair, and that splash of light on the seat of the chair.
