Pair of Paris Scenes Gouache Paintings in Gilt Frames Signed Henri La Touche
Painted in the manner of Leon Cortes or Eugene Galien Laloue, these gouache on canvas paintings were created in Paris, France, circa 1900. The highly detailed scenes are set inside carved gilt frames with a protecting glass on top. One of the paintings depicts “Les Grands Boulevards,” the other shows “La Place de la Madeleine,” both of which are well-known Paris landmarks. From the first motor cars to the Victorian costume, these pieces of art realistically illustrate what Paris life was like back in the late 19th century or early 20th century. The impressionistic scenes are very colorful, lively, and full of historical and cultural details. The antique paintings are in excellent condition and show a beautiful rendering of space, architecture, light and perspective. Both pieces are signed on the lower right by French artist Henry La Touche. Measures: 24″ W x 19.5″ H.
