Portrait of a Lady
Among Giovanni Boldini’s glittering muses was the New York philanthropist Florence Blumenthal (born Florence Meyer). Florence and her husband, George, were generous supporters of the city’s leading institutions, including Mount Sinai Hospital and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. In this portrait, painted in Paris, she is dressed in the height of French fashion, down to the rhinestone-encrusted buckles on her black satin pumps.
