"The artist worked for sixty years continuously, not only as a painter but in many different art fields receiving through the years many prestigious assignments: Villa Zadra, the décor for Papadopoli’s Villa realized in collaboration with the architect Brenno Del Giudice (who will eventually marry Guido’s sister Tullia) is extremely elegant; when he has just turned thirty he receives an order by the “Sommo Poeta”, Gabriele D’Annunzio, to realize the project of the “stanza dei sonni puri” (pure sleep room) at the Vittoriale: he orchestrates a multitude of winged figures on the ceiling, designs painted silks, exquisite furniture, chandeliers." ("Guido Cadorin, Elegant Painter in Twentieth Century Venice")


In 1925, Gino Clerici, a wealthy Milanese industrialist, built a modern and luxurious hotel on via Veneto.
"...the most important piece of decorative unique work inside the Boscolo Hotel Palace is the series of nine fascinating frescoes painted in 1926 by Guido Cadorin (1892-1976). Cadorin inserted numerous portraits of his contemporaries into his frescoes, among them the Italian architect Marcello Piacentini's wife, Matilde Festa, and his niece, the painter Felice Carena and his wife, the architect Melchiorre Bega who strongly supported the choice of Carodin for the hotel's paintings, the friends and family of the owner Gino Clerici, Margherita Grassini Sarfatti and her daughter Fiammetta. "Fiammetta and I wish to be immortalized in your fresco in the main room" was the explicit request coming from a woman who, because of her friendship with Mussolini and her position as journalist and art critic, gave herself the right to put thinly veiled pressure on artists.
Cadorin also inserted himself in the fresco. (boscoloart.com)

Maxime Maufra (1861-1918) French Impressionist Painter

Maxime Maufra, born in Nantes, started painting at 18. In late 1886, he exhibited his artworks at the Paris Salon. He settled in Brittany where he met Gauguin and Serusier. Maufra had his first solo exhibition in Paris in 1894, at Le Barc de Toutteville.

Maufra admired Sisley and Pissarro and sometimes quoted their pointillist-like technique although his technique is clearly more aggressive and bold. His works also feature a pronounced liking for synthesis, strong color, and powerful drawing, traits reminiscent of Pont Aven artists.
