About

'A View of Paris', gouache on paper, by Lucien Génin (circa 1930s). Génin was most noted for his paintings of Paris in the 1920s and 30s. Some were very animated showing Parisians meandering by some of the city's well known landmarks. In this case however, the artist has chosen to depict a cosy corner in an upscale neighbourhood. The centre building might be an hôtel particulier. This is a townhouse of a grand sort, comparable to the British townhouse owned by a private resident. There is often confusion with the French use of the term 'hôtel' in this sense. Whereas an ordinary maison was built as part of a row, sharing party walls with the houses on either side and directly fronting on a street, an hôtel particulier was often free-standing, but not always. There are hôtels particuliers in many large cities in France. This artwork is in good vintage condition and has been newly framed and glazed. It is signed by the artist in the lower left hand of the painting. Please view the many photos accompanying this listing. Upon request a video may be provided. About the Artist: After the devastation of the First World War, Lucien Génin (1894 - 1953) left his provincial home in the autumn of 1919 to find his fortune among the lively Parisians in the heart of Montmartre. Génin befriended the painters Frank Will, Gen Paul, Émile Boyer, Marcel Leprin, as well as Max Jacob and Dorival. Not concerning himself with producing "art", he beautifully captured the spirit of Paris between the wars while enjoying a truly Bohemian existence. Génin's works, in all their forms, perfectly convey the eclectic and friendly characters of the city. More than a painter of Paris, Génin is a painter of Parisians, of the passion that animates all his characters in the big city. He painted them in the alleys of Montmartre, dining on Place du Tertre, singing in the Lapain Agile, or in a car passing by on the grands boulevards. He exhibited his works at the Salon d'Automne in 1930. Those paintings were witness to the end of the Roaring Twenties and the beginning of the world depression of 1929. The art critics stated that he created intelligent, composed, colourful, sensitive, skilful, delicate, humorous and witty works of art. A painting by Lucien Génin was awarded a prestigious prize from the Art Institute of Chicago in 1932. When they do become available, Génin's artworks inspire spirited bidding at international auction houses as values increase along with his stature in the art world. This gallery holds several works by Génin on this platform. Please feel free to make enquiries.
