About

'View of Saint Germain des Pres Church', gouache on paper (circa 1930s), by Lucien Génin. Saint Germain des Pres is one of the oldest Romanesque churches in France founded in 558 AD. The church and abbey were built on the ruins of a Roman temple and rebuilt between 990 and 1021 AD. It was renovated in the 17th and 19th centuries. The church is a landmark of Paris' left bank and across the street from the famous Café Les Deux Magots. This is a quintessential colourful work by artist, Lucien Génin, known for his lush depictions of Paris. The work is newly framed, under glass and in good vintage condition. In the upper right quadrant of the work there is what appears to be a water spot, very possibly left by the artist himself working with gouache. It does not detract from the overall impression of the work and is difficult to notice in the dramatic sky of the painting (see photos). It is signed: 'Lucien Génin' in the lower centre of the work. This artwork may be purchased as a single piece or as a set of three works all by Génin and all depicting delightful vignettes of Paris. They may be viewed on our page on this site. A short video clip of this work can 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. 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. Dimensions with frame: H 31.5 cm (12.4") W 36 cm (14.2") Dimensions without frame: H 21.5 cm (8.5") W 26 cm (10.2")
