Eugene Galien-Laloue (1854–1941) was born in Paris on December 11, 1854, the son of French and Italian parents. He is best known for his brilliantly-rendered Paris street scenes in all seasons, but especially fall and winter.
His best known works are from the early 1900s in the French Belle Epoque period. Galien-Laloue’s works are noteworthy not just for their contribution to art, but also for the actual history they portray: a happy, bustling Paris with horse-drawn carriages and sidewalk cafes. Galien-Laloue was also fond of depicting monuments and occasionally the French countryside. His works are in the collections of the Musee des Beaux-Arts, Louvier and Musee des Beaux Arts, LaRochelle.
