Images of sunny suburban landscapes and bustling streets enliven the Clark's galleries during Giovanni Boldini in Impressionist Paris, the first exhibition in the United States in twenty years focused on Boldini. This vibrant exhibition, which premiered at the Palazzo dei Diamanti in Boldini's hometown of Ferrara, Italy, follows the artist's early career, from his move to Paris where he absorbed the painting techniques of the Impressionists, to the development of his distinctive style of painting vivacious portraits of society figures.
