Eugène Galien-Laloue ( 1854 - 1941): Notre Dame de Paris, vue du Quai de Montebello, c. 1930s, gouache and ink on paper, 37.2 x 53.6cm., Private Collection Galien-Laloue’s paintings of the1920’s and 30’s are very sought after as they depict a Paris full of excitement, culture and vitality and colour. He painted famous views such as Porte St. Denis, the Opera House, the Madeleine or, as we see in this painting here, Notre Dame on a bright sunny day. This is an enthralling work with the intense colours of the popular location in Paris. Highly expressive in its brushwork and wonderful use of lighting to the view.
