Midcentury Parisian Street Oil Painting in Gilt Frame Signed R. de Chatelenne
Set in the original carved gilt frame and painted circa 1960, the oil on canvas painting depicts “la Place de la Republique” in Paris. The artwork is signed in the lower right corner by the artist, Robert de Chatelenne. The painting is in excellent condition with rich colors; the impressionist scene with lots of movement and people, reminds us of the works of Edouard Cortes, Antoine Blanchard or Eugene Galien-Laloue. The Place de la République (formerly known as the Place du Château d’Eau) is a square in Paris, located on the border between the 3rd, 10th and 11th arrondissements. It is named after the French Republic, was called the Place du Château-d’Eau until 1879, and contains a monument which includes a statue of the personification of France, Marianne. Born in the United States as Phillip Fields, Robert De Chatelenne received his formal training at the Academie De La Grande Chaumiere in Paris. While attending the Academie he was also influenced towards his highly impressionist style by the world renowned artist, Edouard Cortes. His works have exhibited in Paris and London as well as the United States. His paintings are highly impressionist, in a loose style in combination of line drawing, transparent glazes, and heavy opaque subject matter. He spent much time in Paris but he is also a world traveler, and a Shakespearean actor. Measures: 24.75″ W x 19.25″ H.
