    • Antoine Blanchard was a prolific and successful Neo-Impressionist painter who specialized in nostalgic scenes of Fin de Siècle Paris. Inspired by the subjects, as well as the success of earlier painters of Parisian life, like Eugene Galien Laloue, Eduard Cortes, Jean Béraud and Luigi Loir, Blanchard painted hundreds of views of the “City of Light.”

       

      Blanchard chose to capture the French capital in its golden years prior to the First World War, and gained popularity for his depictions of the hurly-burly life of Belle Epoch Paris. Blanchard collected old postcards of life in La Belle Époque to provide inspiration and also studied the work of French artists including Loir, Baraud, Laloue and Cortes.

       

      Blanchard’s delicate, feathery pastel-toned scenes of rain-swept Paris were highly sought after by both British and American collectors and can today be found in many notable public and private collections.
