Abstract

It was at the invitation of Baron Gennaro Bellelli and his wife Laura, artist's aunt (an Italian aunt), that Degas went to Florence in August 1858. There he did numerous drawings of the family. He finally painted his group portrait of the Bellelli Family in his studio in Paris. Cousin Giulia is sitting, cousin Laura is standing with mother, Laura Bellelli, the baron is in an armchair, half-turned to the spectators.
