Style and Modernity in La Belle Époque

New York | May 25

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.
