About

Paris Opera House Garnier, gouache on paper (circa 1930s), by Lucien Génin. This very animated image of the Opera Garnier in Paris is quintessential Génin. A very busy day is depicted showing the square in front of probably the most famous opera house in the world and a symbol of Paris. Of course that is partly due to its use as the setting for 'The Phantom of the Opera'. The beautiful building has been described as the only one that is 'unquestionably a masterpiece of the first rank.' Génin captures it perfectly in this wonderfully colourful and uplifting work of art. For those lovers of Paris, the opera, phantoms and vivid colour, this piece is completely accessible and charming by an artist that is collected internationally. It is newly framed, under glass and in very good vintage condition. Signed: 'Lucien Génin' in the lower lefthand corner. This artwork may be purchased as a single piece or as a set of three works all by Génin and all depicting delightful vignettes of Paris. They may be viewed on our page on this site. A short video clip of this work can be provided upon request. 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. 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. Dimensions with frame: H 31.5 cm (12.4") W 36 cm (14.2") Dimensions without frame: H 21.5 cm (8.5") W 26 cm (10.2")
