Francois Gerome

Francois often painted subjects of people in the streets of Paris. More often women at cafe’s or walking on the sidewalk. Usually, there are a few women that have been repeated in his paintings. For many years, I have wanted to obtain a painting by Francois  Gerome. I have found some pieces that have been for sale, but this one is the one that struck me.

A street scene in Paris, and ladies at the cafe. The clock in the background, and the beautiful street lamps. At least one tree is the side of the ladies. The street has a carriage with horses pulling it to its destination. It’s a beautiful scene, and a wonderful painting.
