Paris in paintings: Antoine Blanchard

So here’s the third and probably the last post about Paris and a painter who decided to immortalise its beauty on his canvases.
Antoine Blanchard is actually a pseudonym of a French painter Marcel Masson. His famous Parisian street scenes present the city and its inhabitants in bygone days. Like many French impressionists, Blanchard liked painting the same landmark several times but in different weather conditions. However, if you have a closer look at his works, you can easily guess which weather condition was his favourite 😉

  1. I believe I have two paintings that were painting by Marcel Masson prior to him changing his name to Antoine Blanchard. they were bought I believe in the 50″s for 400.00 each in new York. who should I contact relative to verifying authenticity.
