Will her charming music convince the toreador? Guitar Player (1872) was painted by the Italian artist Giovanni Boldini (1842-1931). It shows a man dressed as a bullfighter (a toreador) hanging out with the female guitar player. It seems a flirtatious encounter between the two, and we can imagine how she is seducing him a bit with her music. The painting stands out because of its brush strokes, especially when looking at the two figures and their outfits. This was one of the trademarks of Boldini’s style, and it earned him the nickname “master of swish,” referring to his flowing strokes on the canvas. And while this shows a Spanish scene, Boldini had never visited Spain when he painted this. However, there was enough inspiration for this painting, as the Spanish themes from everyday life became quite popular during the 1860s and 1870s. #Art #Painting #Artwork #ArtHistory #HistoryofArt #OilPainting #OilonCanvas #FineArts #ArtoftheDay #ItalianArt #ItalianArtist #ItalianPainter #Bullfighter #Toreador #Music #GuitarMusic #Boldini
