Lucien Génin
Le Pont Neuf

circa 1930s

$2,074.1420% Off


'Le Pont Neuf', gouache on fine art paper, by Lucien Génin (circa 1930s). The Pont Neuf is the oldest standing bridge across the river Seine in Paris, France. It stands by the western point of the Île de la Cité, the island in the middle of the river that was, between 250 and 225 BC, the birthplace of Paris. It is called 'The New Bridge' because at the time of its inauguration (built 1578 - 1607), it embodied a very modern look compared to other bridges which spanned the Seine. Lucien Génin has captured its beauty in this lively depiction from the 1930s. It is in good vintage condition commensurate with its age and medium used. It sits in an elegant frame with glass. Please view this listing's accompanying photos carefully to best appreciate the work's condition and aesthetic qualities. Upon request, a short video clip may be provided. 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. Génin befriended the painters Frank Will, Gen Paul, Émile Boyer, Marcel Leprin, as well as Max Jacob and Dorival. 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. More than a painter of Paris, Génin is a painter of Parisians, of the passion that animates all his characters in the big city. He painted them in the alleys of Montmartre, dining on Place du Tertre, singing in the Lapain Agile, or in a car passing by on the grands boulevards. He exhibited his works at the Salon d'Automne in 1930. Those paintings were witness to the end of the Roaring Twenties and the beginning of the world depression of 1929. The art critics stated that he created intelligent, composed, colourful, sensitive, skilful, delicate, humorous and witty works of art. A painting by Lucien Génin was awarded an important prize from the Art Institute of Chicago in 1932. When they do become available, Génin's artworks inspire spirited bidding at international auction houses as values increase along with his stature in the art world. This gallery holds several works by Génin on this platform. Please feel free to make enquiries.
