'Opera Garnier Paris' Limited Edition Lithograph by Urbain Huchet (c. 1980s)
'Opera Garnier Paris', limited edition lithograph by Urbain Huchet (1930 - ). In very good condition, on paper, newly framed and under glass. Signed in pencil by the artist in lower righthand corner: Huchet. Numbered by artist in his own hand in lower lefthand corner: 215/250.
This lively image of the Opera Garnier in Paris is pure Huchet. Elegantly dressed patrons of the opera make their way to a performance in probably the most famous opera house in the world and a symbol of Paris. Of course that is partly due to its use as the setting for 'The Phantom of the Opera'. The beautiful building has been described as the only one that is 'unquestionably a masterpiece of the first rank.' Huchet captures it perfectly in this lighthearted but uplifting work of art. For those lovers of Paris, the opera, phantoms and vivid colour, this piece is completely accessible and charming. It is newly framed, under glass and in excellent condition.

About the Artist: Urbain Huchet was born in France in 1930. After studying law and running a textile factory for four years, he decided in 1960 to devote himself entirely to painting. Urbain Huchet has a luxurious portfolio of lithographs which have been exhibited, auctioned and collected throughout the world. His heart however remains in Paris and his loving renditions of so many Parisian sites bring joy to the heart. At least 300 editions of lithographs have been printed of his works produced and signed by the artist himself in different workshops in Paris and Cannes. It is advisable to collect them now while they are relatively available.
