Giovanni Boldini | The French Cityscapes

Born in Ferrara, the Italian painter* Giovanni Boldini (1842-1931)* moved to Paris in 1871, where painted a number of landscapes in suburban locations outside Paris.
His work from 1871-1886: the bustling streets and squares to cafés, theaters, and concert halls- reflects the influence of his contemporaries: Degas, Manet, Caillebotte, Meissonier, and Fortuny among others.
