Biography

Galien-Laloue is known and widely collected 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.

Born in Paris in 1854, Galien-Laloue studied under Charles Laloue. Galien-Laloue made his debut at the Salon des Artistes Français in 1877, and continued throughout his years to show his works there with great success. In recent years, his work has enjoyed an international resurgence in popularity. Yet Galien-Laloue had another side. As he was under contract to particular galleries and not allowed to show with others, he often painted under aliases. This allowed him to paint something other than the commercially saleable street scenes and to have artistic freedom. An alias gave him the ability to sell his more serious works and to make sales outside his dealer’s gallery. Thus, Galien-Laloue signed many oils with names such as Galiani and Lieven. Galien-Laloue was prolific and painted in many different styles throughout his career. He was a versatile painter and it should be noted that this was partially because he was such a superb and facile draftsman.
