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.

  • 2. 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. Galien-Laloue was commissioned by the Republic of France to paint war scenes both during the Franco-Prussian War and World War I. One oddity associated with Galien-Laloue is that he often painted under pseudonyms, the result of an onerous exclusive gallery contract he’d signed and from which he sought relief. His pseudonyms were various but included “L.Dupuy,” “Juliany,” “E.Galiany,” “Lievin,” “Cortes” and “Dumoutier.” So much for the history — don’t you just love Galien-Laloue’s work? His street scenes shine as if lit from within and you can practically feel the buzz on the street.
