Eugene Galien Laloue Biography | Oil Paintings
12-11-1854 Paris, FRA - 1-16-1941 Chérence, FRA
Eugene Galien Laloue was taught art and painting by his set designer father Charles Laloue. He is credited as being instrumental in promoting and popularizing the Paris street scene painting genre, his works provide historical insight into pre-twentieth century Parisian life. Eugene Galien Laloue paintings of the early 1900s accurately represent the era in which he lived during la Belle Époque, a cheerful and bustling Paris.
He exhibited Le Quai aux Fleurs par la Neige, Flower Market Along the Seine Under the Snow for his first exhibition in 1876 at the Museum of Reims, and in 1877, at the age of twenty-three, he had his first showing at the Paris Salon des Artistes Français, and he continued to show works there the rest of his career.
A typical Eugene Galien-Laloue painting depicts sidewalks and avenues swarming with people or tourists mingling before Paris's landmarks, also painting landscapes in Normandy and Seine-et-Marne. The French government selected Galien Laloue to work as a war artist, commissioned to paint military scenes both during the Franco-Prussian War and during World War I.
Eugene Galien Laloue had an exclusive contract for his paintings with one art gallery and he used five pseudo names, "L.Dupuy", "Juliany", "E.Galiany", "Lievin" and "Dumoutier", which was used for two reasons, first, so the gallery seemed to display many artists, and second, different names applied to different motif he was painting.
