As La Belle Époque blossomed towards the end of France’s Second Empire, Paris was where the world’s luminaries and literati flocked to see and be seen. An exceptional full-length portrait by Boldini leads this single-owner sale of Belle Époque works, which features fashionable portraits, scenes of modern life, and Salon-exhibited paintings by the leading artists working at the close of the 19th century and ushered in a new Gilded Age. The collection, Belle Époque Splendor: The Discerning Eye of a Collector, will be offered on 25 May 2022.
