'Parisian Street Corner' by Roland Hamon (circa 1970s)
'Parisian Street Corner', oil on canvas (circa 1970s), by Roland Hamon. This artwork depicts a splendid, clear day on a typical street corner in France's capital city. Diners sit on sidewalk tables while passers-by go about their business. The architecture is quintessential Paris and the artist has wonderfully captured a bit of Parisian history. It's a charming snippet of everyday life in one of the most beautiful cities in the world. The detail, colour and perspective make this painting very charming and desirable for those lovers of the city. In good vintage condition commensurate with age. Newly framed in a tray. Signed: 'R. Hamon' in the lower right hand corner. Upon request, a video clip of the artwork will be provided.
About the Artist: Roland Hamon (1909 - 1987), was a French painter of landscapes and animated urban scenes. He was a student at the National School of Fine Arts in Paris and exhibited at the Salon des Artists where he was a member since 1934. A prolific artist, we owe him a debt of thanks for having captured and preserved so many views of Paris from the 1930s to the 1970s, particularly in the area around Sacre Coeur, in Montmartre. His artworks are collected internationally and frequently appear for sale in the major auction houses.
