'Flower Seller, Place de la Madeleine - Paris 1890s', gouache on art paper (painted circa 1910 - 1920). As Parisians awaken on a quiet Sunday morning, flower sellers position themselves outside the church of La Madeleine. If you stroll up from Place de la Concorde past chez Maxim and down the elegant Rue Royale, one arrives at an icon of Paris, l'eglise de la Madeleine. It was designed in its present form as a temple to the glory of Napoleon's army. In this delightful depiction one sees the flower seller under the trees' springtime foliage awaiting the arrival of the well-healed churchgoers who will buy flowers. The women's dress is that of working women in the 1890s however, the artwork was created in the early 20th century. Regrettably, the artist's signature is indecipherable however, they wrote 'Place de la Madeleine - Paris'. In good vintage condition commensurate with age. Newly framed and glazed. Upon request a video of the artwork will be provided.
