An atmospheric c1940 Parisian streetscape with the famous Palais Garnier featuring in the background; by the post-impressionist artist, Edourd Le Saout (1909-1981). La Saout kept a studio in the Rue Du Pilori and painted the urban landscapes in and around Paris as well as the Brittany area. His landscapes are admired for his mastery of movement and nuances of tones.
We have dated this painting from the style of cars depicted by the artist, and the original ornate gesso frame the painting came to us in, which was badly damaged (and thus removed). Fortunately, the canvas was in good condition and just required cleaning.
Such a wonderful painting for transporting the viewer to the streets of Paris.
Oil on Canvas with original studding to the stretcher, signed lower right, Edouard Le Saout.
Professionally cleaned & ready to hang.
