'Rooftops of Paris', oil on board, by Georges Regnault (circa 1960s). If you love Paris, you will be enchanted by this absolutely charming depiction of the city from the hilly neighbourhood of Ménilmontant in the 20th Arrondissement. Beyond the rooftops on this blustery Parisian day one can spot the spires of Notre Dame cathedral. Nearby is the well known Père Lachaise cemetery. Before its 1860 absorption into Paris, Ménilmontant lay beyond the capital's tax border so that wine was cheaper there, leading to the development of numerous drinking establishments known as guinguettes, in the 18th century. There is no denying the charm of this painting and it will surely warm your heart and your home. In good vintage condition, the artwork has been newly framed with linen slip. Signed by the artist in the lower right hand corner. Please view the many photos accompanying this listing to appreciate its condition and charm. Upon request a video may be provided.
