The promenade, called 'Croisette', is a subject which Gagliardini has chosen 3 or 4 times and treated in different dimensions.

The painting shows the typical brushwork and the special colored delicacy of a good work of Gagliardini.

Gagliardini is with his works from 1880 on an impressionist artist, who has taken a completely separate development compared to the main figures of this period.

In his artistic career, he won very many awards, including the gold medal at the Exposition Universelle in 1900.

Artists dictionaries: Thieme-Becker, Schurr-Cabanne, Bénézit, Saur.

Artworks by Gagliardini are holding such important public collections such as the Museums of Fine Arts of Amiens, Arras, Bayeux, Cambrai, Marseille, Mulhouse, Reims and Tourcoing (there 2 paintings); Musée Fabre, Montpellier; Musée Malraux, Le Havre; Musée Baron Gérard, Bayeux; Musée du Louvre, Paris.
