Pair of Mid-Century Parisian Scenes Oil on Canvas Paintings Signed C. Burnett
Decorate a study wall or office with this elegant pair of colorful antique paintings! Hand painted on stretched canvas in France circa 1940, each large artwork depicts a popular Parisian landmark in the impressionist style, “la Cathedrale Notre Dame” and “Le Marche aux Fleurs et la Conciergerie”. Both street paintings are in excellent condition with soft pastels colors, and are signed in the lower right corner by American artist, Caroline Burnett. Caroline Barnett (1877-1950) was an American-born artist who studied in Paris towards the earlier part of her career; she was known for her Impressionist street scenes of Paris. Her painting style reflected the contemporary movement that was occurring in France during her time there. Caroline Burnett paintings also display hints of abstract influence, especially her figural paintings. She was a member of the Societe de Beaux-Arts in Paris, where she exhibited her works in 1898. Using both light and shadow with skill and precision, she painted cityscapes showing each season in Paris. Though her artwork’s value is mainly aesthetic, Caroline Burnett oil painting prices are affordable for modern travelers who want a reminder of a place they have visited. Measures: 36″W x 24″H.
