Une Rue Parisienne

by Lucien Adrion

Lucien Adrion was a French painter known for his depictions of the countryside and bustling street scenes. Though his paintings were made after the heyday of Impressionism, Adrion’s work largely adhered to the movement’s aesthetic model.

There is a distinct shift in Adrion’s later style, when bored with his life in Paris he left his agent Chéron for Normandy and focused on painting landscapes. These were again successful and gained great popularity. His paintings are not only in French collections but throughout Europe and the United States.

Lucien Adrion was greatly appreciated for his crowded street scenes around Paris. For example, the critic Galtier-Boissiére, (1891-1966) wrote, “He has a feeling for the movement of crowds, the movement of life”. This is evident in Une rue parisienne where Adrion has captured the tumult and business of the hustling, bustling Parisian capital.

Lucien Adrion was a French painter known for his depictions of the countryside and bustling street scenes. Though his paintings were made after the heyday of Impressionism, Adrion’s work largely adhered to the movement’s aesthetic model. Born on May 25, 1889 in Strasbourg, Germany (present-day France), he moved to Paris at the age of 18, where he worked as a fashion illustrator. Travelling to London, Munich, and then Frankfurt, he was forced to travel to Berlin during the outbreak of World War I. In Berlin, he studied under Hermann Struck until the end of the war allowed him to return to Strasbourg. Setting up his studio in the Montparnasse neighborhood of Paris, Adrion befriended a number of young painters including Chaim Soutine, before having his first solo exhibition in 1926. In the decades that followed, the artist began to spend more time in the region of Normandy, where he found the beach scenes and landscapes which became his primary motif. The artist died on August 9, 1953 in Paris, France. Today, his works are held in the collections of the Musée d’Art Moderne et Contemporain de Strasbourg and the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam
