About

'Sacré-Coeur, Montmartre at Willette Square, Paris', gouache on art paper (circa 1930s), by Lucien Génin. Created by the Director of Public Ways and Promenades under Napoleon III, Square Willette is a large garden on the slopes of the Butte Montmartre. The Square is named in honour of Adolphe Willette (1857-1926), an artist who lived in Montmartre and who illustrated the pages of such magazines as "Le Chat Noir", "Le Pied de Nez", and "Le Courrier Français". What a wonderful depiction of this icon of Paris by an artist renowned for creating delightful vignettes of the city in the 1930s. The artwork is newly framed, glazed and in good overall condition. It is signed by the artist in the lower right hand corner. Upon request a video of the piece 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 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.
