Enrico Sacchetti’s fashionable ladies

Just like Giovanni Boldini, Enrico Sacchetti (Rome, 1877 – Florence, 1967) was popular in Paris salons during the declining Belle Époque. He moved to the French capital for some time in 1912, after having worked in Italy as a painter and illustrator. His work until then had spanned from caricatures – including some for Umberto Notari’s periodical “Verde e Azzurro” – to commercial art, with a particularly successful campaign for Bitter Campari.

In Paris, he put his creativity at the service of fashion: the weekly “La Vie Parisienne” regularly showcased his unbelievably elegant ladies, captured in poses that landed somewhere between portraits and caricatures.

In 1913, Sacchetti’s illustrations were collected in a book titled “Robes et Femmes”, of which we present here a few selected pages.
