French School Impressionistic View Of A Parisian Square

French School Impressionistic View Of A Parisian Square

An early 20th-century oil on canvas depicting a view within one of Paris’ many squares. With an easy-going muted palette, the artist has captured the atmosphere perfectly.

We particularly love the flashes of green and red to highlight the brightly coloured shop fronts, as the remaining buildings blend into ochre.

How many figures can you spot?

The painting is signed ‘Graves’ in the lower left and housed within an attractive gilded frame.

Conservation & History

We care profoundly about our role as custodians and every piece in the collection has been assessed by our conservator. When required, we undertake professional restoration carefully using reversible techniques and adopt a light touch to retain the aged charm of each work. We also restore frames rather than replace them as many are original and selected by the artists themselves.
