Les Grands Boulevards sous la Neige

£24,000

Galien- Laloue was painting in an electrifying city, a city that was the artistic and cultural centre of the world, a city in which ladies of high fashion paraded about streets that were for the first time being freshly populated by omnibuses and cabs. The entertainment and nightlife of Paris was unequalled by any other city in the world and Galien-Laloue captured that moment.

Description

Eugène Galien-Laloue is known widely as a School of Paris or Belle Époque painter. Most people are familiar with his Parisian street scenes that are similar to those by Luigi Loir and Edouard Cortes. They are often works on paper done with watercolour and gouache, though he is known to have worked in a multitude of media including pen, pencil, ink, and oil. These street scenes have become highly collected and desired as they were even during his lifetime.
