Victor Dargaud | The Statue of Liberty in Frederic-Auguste Bartholdi's Studio, Paris

Paul-Joseph-Victor Dargaud (1850-1921), a specialist in topographically accurate views of the fashionable boulevards of Paris, is little known today, although he exhibited at the Salon from 1873 until his death.
This painting, one of his best-known works, represents the fabrication of the Statue of Liberty.
Its sculptor, Frédéric-Auguste Bartholdi, aspired to rival the sublime effect of such monuments as the Pyramids and the Sphinx.

Because of its scale, Bartholdi had to construct Liberty in sections, as shown in this painting of the statue’s left arm.
Although the right arm of the statue was shipped to the United States in 1876 in time for the centennial, the entire statue was not completed until 1883.

Marc Chagall | Paris through my window, 1913

After Marc Chagall moved to Paris from Russia in 1910, his paintings quickly came to reflect the latest avant-garde styles.
In "Paris Through the Window", Chagall’s debt to the Orphic Cubism of his colleague Robert Delaunay is clear in the semitransparent overlapping planes of vivid color in the sky above the city.
The Eiffel Tower, which appears in the cityscape, was also a frequent subject in Delaunay’s work. For both artists it served as a metaphor for Paris and perhaps modernity itself.
Chagall’s parachutist might also refer to contemporary experience, since the first successful jump occurred in 1912. Other motifs suggest the artist’s native Vitebsk.

Salon de Paris, 1667-1890 | Art History

Hubert Robert | The Grande Galerie of the Louvre, 1801

As a result, its influence on French painting - in particular artistic style, painterly conventions and the reputation of artists - was enormous.
At the 1761 Salon, thirty-three painters, nine sculptors, and eleven engravers contributed.
From 1881 onward, it has been managed by the Société des Artistes Français.

Gustave Caillebotte | A Balcony in Paris


Those boulevards, don’t forget, were still pretty new in 1877.
In the mid-19th Century, Napoléon III had ordered a massive redevelopment of the unruly French capital - led by Georges-Eugène Haussmann, the prefect of the Seine, who boldly (you might say pitilessly) cleared out Paris’s dense, politically restless faubourgs.
In their place arose standardised blocks of housing, fronting new extended axes that showcased landmarks like so many imperial baubles.

Gustave Caillebotte | Paris Street, Rainy Day, 1877


This complex intersection, just minutes away from the Saint-Lazare train station, represents in microcosm the changing urban milieu of late nineteenth-century Paris.
Gustave Caillebotte🎨 grew up near this district when it was a relatively unsettled hill with narrow, crooked streets.
As part of a new city plan designed by Baron Georges-Eugène Haussmann, these streets were relaid and their buildings razed during the artist’s lifetime. In this monumental urban view, which measures almost seven by ten feet and is considered the artist’s masterpiece, Caillebotte strikingly captured a vast, stark modernity, complete with life-size figures strolling in the foreground and wearing the latest fashions.

Pierre-Eugène Montézin | Painter of Paris

Childe Hassam | Paris painting


In 1886, American painter Childe Hassam (1859-1935)🎨 had moved to France to study figure drawing and painting at the prestigious Académie Julian.
He took advantage of the formal drawing classes with Gustave Boulanger and Jules Joseph Lefebvre🎨, but quickly moved on to self-study, finding that "the Julian academy is the personification of routine...[academic training] crushes all originality out of growing men. It tends to put them in a rut and it keeps them in it", preferring instead, "my own method in the same degree".

Paintings of Notre-Dame de Paris

Victor Hugo🎨, in The Hunchback of Notre-Dame:
"A vast symphony in stone, so to speak; the colossal work of one man and one people, all together one and complex, like the Iliads and the Romanceros, whose sister it is; prodigious product of the grouping together of all the forces of an epoch, where, upon each stone, one sees the fancy of the workman disciplined by the genius of the artist start forth in a hundred fashions; a sort of human creation, in a word, powerful and fecund as the divine creation of which it seems to have stolen the double character - ariety, eternity".

Sylvius Paoletti (1864-1921) Notre Dame de Paris, 1907
