Paul Gagni was born in 1893 and is a Post-Impressionist French artist. He studied at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris. He exhibited at the Autumn Salon and the Salon of Independent Artists. He is well known for his Paris street scenes, and he died in 1962 with a great legacy of impressionistic artworks.
This piece is an exceptional impressionistic cityscape scene by Gagni of flower vendors along the sidewalk, as pedestrians, bicycles and cars stroll along the road. This Paris scene is depicted with soft brushwork and beautiful details. The busy street is captured from the times of the early 20th century with captivating movement and great impressionisms. A true piece of the times. Comes in a beautiful french carved wood frame with an original plaque. There is some amount of craquelure in the sky from old age but otherwise in good condition.
