Gustave Caillebotte | A Balcony in Paris


Those boulevards, don’t forget, were still pretty new in 1877.
In the mid-19th Century, Napoléon III had ordered a massive redevelopment of the unruly French capital - led by Georges-Eugène Haussmann, the prefect of the Seine, who boldly (you might say pitilessly) cleared out Paris’s dense, politically restless faubourgs.
In their place arose standardised blocks of housing, fronting new extended axes that showcased landmarks like so many imperial baubles.

Lorenzo Bartolini | Faith in God / Fiducia in Dio, 1835


Lorenzo Bartolini🎨's "Fiducia in Dio" is the artist's best-known work and, more generally, is emblematic of Italian sculpture🎨 in the generation after Canova🎨. The model recalls Canova🎨's Mary Magdalen, but the work is more indebted to the observation of nature than the influence of the antique. It typifies the move towards a softer Neo-classicism which made way for Romanticism in Italian sculpture🎨.
