$39,500

About

A fashionable woman at a Parisian cafe is the subject of this oil on canvas by the Ukrainian artist Elie-Anatole Pavil. Pavil, who emigrated to Paris in 1892, is celebrated for his Belle Époque scenes that capture the vivacious atmosphere of Paris, from its lively cafes and night clubs to its glamorous women. His exceptional canvases, with their broad brushwork and modern use of color, are reminiscent of the great Impressionists Edgar Degas and Pierre-Auguste Renoir. Au Café is exemplary of his output, boasting a compelling composition, a fashionable subject, and a highly modern palette. Born in Odessa in 1873, Elie-Anatole Pavil moved to Paris in 1892, establishing himself in the bustling artistic neighborhood of Montmartre. He became a frequent exhibitor at the Salon des Artists Français, Salon des Indépendants, and the Salon d’Automne, where his portraits of fashionable Parisian women and everyday scenes in cafés were widely praised alongside the Impressionists of the age. Claude Monet, perhaps the era's most popular painter, is known to have described Pavil's paintings as "little marvels." He received a number of awards throughout his career, including silver medals from the Salon in both 1930 and 1931. Eventually, he was named a Chevalier de la Légion d'Honneur, a remarkable achievement for an artist who was not born in France. Later in his career, he moved to Morocco, where he continued to paint his modern scenes of everyday life. Today, his works can be found in important museum collections throughout Europe, including the Musée d'Orsay (Paris) and the Musée du Petit Palais (Paris). Circa 1930 Canvas: 21 1/4" high x 25 3/4" wide Frame: 27 1/2" high x 32" wide
