Impressionist Paintings by French and American Artists Highlight Helmuth Stone Gallery’s Upcoming SaleDec 04, 2022 13:00 EST
French painter Edouard Léon Cortès (1882 – 1969) was known as “the Parisian Poet of Painting.” He was noted for his Impressionist images of Paris, illustrating the romantic cityscapes in varied weather conditions and settings. Le Quai du Louvre vers le pont des Arts, one such monumental painting by Cortès, is a key highlight of the upcoming Helmuth Stone Gallery sale. In this oil on canvas, Cortès portrays the landmark street with his characteristic subtleness. The artist depicts intonations of weather and light with delicate brushwork and colors. Two noteworthy paintings by Impressionist artist Emile Albert Gruppé also lead the listings. One is a New England winter landscape portraying leafless trees in snowy woodlands. The other is a harbor view titled Morning Chores. Gruppé was greatly influenced by Claude Monet, the leader of the French Impressionist movement.
The sale also features James Edward Buttersworth’s ship portrait. It depicts a scenic marine view with careful detailing and an elegant sense of movement. The 19th-century English painter was counted among the leading ship portraitists in the United States during his time.
