About

'Emile's Tavern', gouache on paper (circa 1930s), by Lucien Génin. A tavern in French is called a 'guinguette'. With the rise in living standards from the 1860s along with the development of public transport, guingettes set up in the Parisian suburbs to the east on the banks of the Marne, to the west on the banks of the Seine. These establishments provided a diversity of activities linked to their rural locations and close to the water. Boating, fishing, swimming, rides, swings, etc., were amusing distractions for the people in those days. Guinguettes had cafés, restaurants and also venues for weddings, banquets and dances. These continued operating until the end of WW II. Lucien Génin beautifully captures one of these colourful establishments near 1930s Paris in this charming and uplifting painting. The work is newly framed, under glass and in good overall condition. Signed: 'Lucien Génin' in the lower lefthand corner. This artwork may be purchased as a single piece or as a set of Genin's paintings as this gallery holds several artworks by the artist all depicting delightful vignettes of Paris and surrounds. They may be viewed on this platform. A video of this work may be provided upon request. 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 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 Lapin 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.
