A Picture Perfect Opening for Boldini at The Clark

Rural Intelligence Parties and OpeningsCultural correspondent Bess J.M. Hochstein reports from Williamstown:

To open its winter exhibition, Giovanni Boldini in Impressionist Paris, on February 13, The Clark threw a somewhat French-accented party—largely by dint of the food: fondue (both cheese and chocolate) served in the café; classic Gallic dishes, such as croque monsieur, coquilles St. Jacques, and saucisson-en-croute, passed as hors d’oeuvres; plus large framed-mirror platters of morbier, brie, and other fromages and patés. The party’s theme, “Picture Yourself at The Clark,” referenced Boldini’s renown for society portraiture. The theme was well integrated into party activities; guests queued up to have artists Julia Dixon and Michael Rousseau sketch their portraits and to slip into a photo booth, and photographs taken throughout the evening were projected on a lobby wall. Of course the Boldini show was the main event, and these romantic paintings surely helped guests get in the mood on the eve of Valentine’s Day.
