Édouard Leon Cortès
Le Terminus Madeleine-Bastille À Paris By Edouard Léon Cortès

20th century

About the Item

Edouard Léon Cortès 1882-1969 French Le terminus Madeleine-Bastille à Paris Signed “Edouard Cortès” (lower right) Oil on canvas Celebrated as the "Parisian Poet of Painting," Edouard Léon Cortès was a master at capturing the timeless energy and beauty of the City of Lights. Le terminus Madeleine-Bastille à Paris is no exception. Cortès depicts the historic thoroughfare on an autumn evening, as horse-drawn carriages and pedestrians alike traverse the streets as dusk falls. Cortès' canvases capture the very essence of the Belle Époque, a period in Paris when fashion, art and culture flourished with boundless energy. With bold splashes of color, Cortès crafts a nostalgic narrative, documenting the seasons' progression at one of the city's best-known thoroughfares. The dimly lit street is aglow with the golden light of lanterns and storefronts, each contributing to the romance of the Parisian setting. Raised in a prolific artistic environment, Cortès was an avid student of both his father, French painter Antonio Cortès, and his older brother, Andre. He also benefited from the influence of Maximilien Luce, Camille Pissarro and Lucien Pissarro, among other Impressionist artists, who were close friends of the family and flocked to Lagny-sur-Marne for its picturesque landscapes. At seventeen, he continued his studies at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris, and soon after earned fame when he contributed a dramatic Parisian street scene at dusk to the Socíeté des Artistes Française. From that point onwards, Cortès dedicated his extensive oeuvre to capturing the magic of Paris on canvas. Though he painted the same streets time and time again, each work is unique in its narrative and perspective, each mindful of the changes brought by both the seasons and progress, yet each enchantingly nostalgic. Throughout his life, his depictions of a captivating Paris were in high demand, and they remain a favorite of collectors and art aficionados today. 20th century Canvas: 18 1/2" high x 21 5/8" wide Frame: 25 1/2" high x 29" wide x 3 1/4" deep

    By Hughes Claude Pissarro
    Located in New Orleans, LA
    Hugues Claude Pissarro b.1935 French Dimanche au champ de course (Deauville) (Sunday at the Racetrack) Signed “H. Claude Pissarro” (lower left) Pastel on card French artist Hugues Claude Pissarro offers a unique perspective of the racetrack in Deauville in this exceptional pastel. The spectators are as much his subject as the sport in this artistic tribute to a leisurely Sunday at the tracks. Following the impressionist tradition of his father and grandfather before him, Pissarro infuses this pastel with dynamic light and vibrant colors. Entitled Dimanche au Champ de Course (Deauville), it showcases the artist's highly distinctive and sophisticated style. Hailing from a long lineage of painters, Pissarro's artistic talents were cultivated at an early age. He exhibited his first works at the young age of 14 and later studied in Paris at the École du Louvre and École Normale Supérieure. A 1959 White House commission to paint the portrait of President...

  • Dance of the Nymphs
    By Paul Desire Trouillebert
    Located in New Orleans, LA
    This lyrical landscape entitled Dance of the Nymphs was composed by the French Barbizon painter Paul Désiré Trouillebert. A joyful scene of nymphs dancing the morning fog, the work closely resembles an important work by the great Camille Corot, which is now housed at the Musée d'Orsay (Paris). Renowned for his unique individuality that toed the line between the traditional and modern, Corot and his landscapes helped pave the way for an entire generation of Impressionists who followed him. Trouillebert perfectly captures the poetic atmosphere of Corot’s groundbreaking works, while also imbuing this scene with a freshness and character that is all his own. Trouillebert's oil on canvas is exemplary of the tradition of historical painting. The work perfectly combines a realistic depiction of the natural world with a spirited romanticism as his idealized nymph figures frolic playfully beneath a crisp morning sky. As a whole, it is a lovely composition executed with a level of skill and artistry that proves Trouillebert's exceptional talent in the arts. Born in Paris in 1831, Paul Désiré Trouillebert was a student of the academic painters Ernest Hébert...
