Original Paintings at Place Dauphine: Watercolor from the late 19th century representing flooded docks in Paris, Notre Dame in the distance
A testimony to a past that has long since disappeared. The background issketched of Notre Dame and buildings on the Left and Right banks -- before Haussman. The foreground is finely detailed, drawing your eye to the river scene. A boatman walks on a manmade bridge to the barge, wooden planks resting on small boats. A piece of French history, beforequay were built to moor boats. Good technique in the impressionist spirit.
Beautiful and subtle colors:the burnt orange colors of the trees along the Seine; it's Autumn in Paris.Artist used soft greens to depict the reflections on the water.
