Description: The Dispatch Bearer, 1879 Oil Canvas Painting:

  • Hand-painted oil on canvas
  • Spaniard king frame
  • Ready to hang

This image, more than many of his others, really shows the influences that impacted the artwork of Italian painter Giovanni Boldini. In reaction to the majestic, mysterious, and emotional longing for the Medieval which characterized the Romantic style, movements like the French Barbizon school and the Italian Macchiaioli were early Realists. They viewed everyday people, events, and settings as being worthy of a place in the fine arts. In wide strokes and with a muted, almost dirty color palette, Boldini chose to transform a relatively mundane contemporary event into a slick composition worthy of exhibition in the Paris Salon. Made in 1879, Boldini found enormous success in Paris after life training in Italy and a period in London. This handmade reproduction in oil on canvas brings the work of the renowned painter into your home.
