Description

Antoine Blanchard (c.1910-1988), "Palace Saint Michel, Notre Dame", oil on canvas, 13 x 18", frame: 19.5 x 24.5"
Importer: Leopold Landsberger

Antoine Blanchard is a Paris School painter who, like many of his contemporaries, specialized in depicting luminous Parisian street scenes.  As an artist who loved Paris, he exclusively depicted the city in its golden age, the turn of the century Belle Epoque.  A prolific artist, he did work that was well received by local collectors as well as the numerous visitors who flocked to Paris following WWII and the second half of the 20th Century. Following academic exposure to the arts in Rennes where he was awarded the provincial award "Le Prix du Ministre," Blanchard continued his studies in Paris at the Ecole des Beax Arts.  He competed and was awarded the Grand Prix de Rome.
