Giovanni Boldini
Pleasure

Mart Rovereto

The major exhibition Giovanni Boldini. Pleasure features over 150 works from public and private collections, many of which belong to the Giovanni Boldini Museum in Ferrara, which closed to the public after the earthquake in 2012.
Known as one of the most famous portrait painters of the Belle Époque, Boldini made use of his extraordinary talent to capture the essence of a dazzling era in which he was a famous protagonist.
At the Mart, the artist's work is displayed chronologically, allowing visitors to make connections between the various themes and relationships that marked the Italian painter's career. His relationship with the poet Gabriele d'Annunzio is also explored through their shared muses, such as the Marchesa Luisa Casati, an eccentric and seductive femme fatale.

In collaboration with
