About

A wonderful oil on original canvas circa 1930 by sought after French impressionist painter Edouard Leon Cortes depicting figures not the street by the Arc de Triomphe in Paris, France on what looks to be a cold autumn evening in the city. The sun is setting beyond the arch and the sky is glowing in yellow and pink tones. Signature: Signed lower right and again verso. Dimensions: Framed: 15"x19" Unframed: 9"x13" Provenance: This work will be included in the forthcoming Edouard Cortès: Catalogue Raisonné de l'Oeuvre Peint, Volume III. Edouard Léon Cortès was a French painter known for his idealized, Impressionistic scenes of Parisian streets and rural French villages. Though Cortès was decades younger than the first generation of Impressionist painters like Claude Monet, his paintings are more aligned with the earlier generation than they are to his Post-Impressionist peers André Derain or Henri Matisse. Born on April 26, 1882 in Lagny-sur-Marne, his father was the artist Antonio Cortés Cordero, who served as a painter at the royal court of Spain. He went on to study at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris in 1899, and in 1915, he was awarded the Silver Medal at the Société des Artistes.
