Why We Love It

Adolphe travelled to Europe where he studied with such renowned artists as Jean Leon Gerome and James McNeill Whistler. He continued to paint and exhibit there throughout his life, and this Parisian street scene is an excellent example of his fresh impressionist style.

The Value

This delightful Parisian landscape is wonderfully painted. It is attractively priced for a new collector, but its charm and beauty could appeal to a seasoned collector as well.  It is a pleasing package all around!
