Estimado Paul:
Admiro las pinceladas de Boldini, parecen plumas de pájaro a veces frenéticas, decididas, pero siempre fascinantes.
Ese retrato de Garibaldi es uno de mis favoritos, junto con "Girl in a black hat" (pastel). Y en "A lady with a cat" (¿es una acuarela?) hay un hermoso "modernismo" de altísima calidad artística.

Paul, I have to disagree with you when you say that La Gatta was the equal of Sargent when it comes to drawing. To me, there is no comparison. I say this based on a large file of La Gatta tearsheets (as well as having read the La Gatta book. La Gatta had a pleasing way of rendering women (and it shows that La Gatta liked women a whole lot more than Sargent did)but for me, Sargent starts at such a higher plane that even a "stodgy" Sargent drawing of a mere woman is superior to La Gatta's efforts. And of course, Sargent did a whole lot of "non-stodgy" drawings that crackled wih excitement.
