About

An exquisite oil painting by renown artist Antoine Blanchards depicting the French street scene Les Grands Boulevards et La Porte Saint Denis. There are horse and buggy along the street with bustling of people walking about their day. A vivid and impressive work with wonderful executions of light speckling across the road. A very charming work with delightful details throughout. The artist captured the moment of the times very intimately. The painting is signed lower right and comes displayed in a wood carved French frame. Art measures 13 x 18 in Frame measures 20 x 25 in In the period we know as La Belle Époque from about 1880 to 1914, there were many revolutionary ideas in politics, technology, science, poetry, music, literature and the fine arts emerged in Paris during this vibrant time. Paris was the cosmopolitan, fashionable stage on which the drama of the Belle Epoque was enacted. The city itself was in a state of dramatic change with the rebuilding undertaken by Napoleon III and Baron Haussmann starting in the 1850's. Yielded wide tree-lined avenues, extensive parks, and elegant golden-gray stone buildings. Parisians thronged the new boulevards, parks, and theaters to see and to be seen. Cortès paintings express the romance, energy, and charm of old Paris through his masterly application of bold brush strokes and intriguing colors. Displaying the profound knowledge he held of perspective and composition, as the viewer's eye is most often caught by the fascinating details of his pieces, like the play of lights on wet pavement, shadows on streets and glowing windows and street lamps. For instance in this particular painting, one can find an array of tones ranging from soft gray hues and ambers to vivid reds, yellows, and oranges. A splash of red, pink and green of the flower vendor cart, may be a woman's maroon tailored dress or a stroke of light blue, in girls cloak. The viewer cannot help but marvel at the overall effect of the artist's wonderful composition of this piece. PROVENANCE: Lilac Gallery Collection.
