Object Description

Antoine Blanchard 1910-1988
Antoine Blanchard was born in the Loire region and displayed early artistic talent. He studied at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris where won the prestigious Prix de Rome. He had a great passion for the city of Paris which was encouraged by his father and grandfather. His career was devoted to painting Paris scenes as he remembered them from his childhood and youth. His style is extremely recognisable and his execution very meticulous.
