    I wish I knew! I am certain I saw other pieces by this artist at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, though.

    Thanks for the suggestion Kristine. I didn't find it among my John Singer Sargent search, but who knows . . . I'll keep searching.

    Giovanni Boldini (1842-1931). Born in Ferrara, Italy in 1845. Like Sargent, he had an international career, working mainly in Paris, but also in England where he was well known in London. By the turn of the century Boldini had become the most sought after portrait painter in Paris, achieving such a success that his reputation equaled that of Sargent’s in London.
