Painter of genre scenes, military subjects, animated landscapes, urban landscapes, gouache painter, watercolourist.Pupil of his father Charles Laloue, Eugène Galien-Laloue exhibits at the Salon from 1879 and makes a specialty of the views from Paris to the Belle Epoque. Facilitated by great ease, Eugène Galien-Laloue had a very large production, mainly with gouache and works of small sizes. Eugène Galien-Laloue often represents the most picturesque places in Paris: The Grands Boulevards, The flower markets of La Madeleine or La Conciergerie, The banks of the Seine.At the beginning of the 20th century Eugène Galien-Laloue has a good reputation by evoking the atmosphere of Paris in 1900 with his omnibuses and his coaches of La Belle Epoque. The work of Eugene Galien-Laloue also has a testimony value of his time .This refined and delicate artist also painted landscapes of Normandy, Seine and Marne, Marseilles, Italy and Venice and in 1914 representations of military views.The PAINTERS of PARISParis is one of the cities in the world that has attracted the most painters. But the nature and reasons for this interest have evolved with the history of the city. Paris is a mosaic of neighborhoods. The painters represented the most seductive sites and prestigious monuments by appropriating the places to feed their imagination - from the Ile de la Cité to the Arc de Triomphe - from the Place Clichy to the Opera - the Latin Quarter at the Tuileries - from the Grands Boulevards to Montmartre or to the banks of the Seine -The nineteenth century profoundly changed the appearance of the city and the realistic painter will focus on representing men in their daily lives.Under Napoleon III, the modernization of the capital, led by Baron Haussmann, with the boring of major thoroughfares, the construction of new neighborhoods such as around Parc Monceau or Etoile, monuments such as the Opera House or the Church of St. Augustin, the development of the Bois de Boulogne and Vincennes - as many subjects as painters will want to fix on the canvas.After the tests of 1870, Paris is released and lives a period of pleasures of joie de vivre. Many painters, French and foreign, have illustrated with happiness this society called "The Belle Epoque" - Among the most famous: Auguste Renoir and "The Bal du Moulin de la Galette"Claude Monet and "Gare St-Lazare" - Raoul Dufy at the "Royal Palace" - Edouard Manet "Music at the Tuileries" - Henri de Toulouse Lautrec"At the Moulin Rouge"Some painters have become "the specialists of Paris" representing the animation of the streets and gardens, the flower markets of the city or along the Church of the Madeleine, the "bouquinistes" on the banks of the Seine with Notre Dame. .. All is an excuse to chew on life this hectic and worldly life at any time of day or night, and in any season. Such as: Jean Béraud and his elegant - Edouard Cortès - Georges Stein or Eugene Galien Laloue.
