Place de la Republique

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.
