The Seine and Notre Dame, Paris oil on canvas by René Zimmermann
René Zimmermann (1904-1991) was a French painter who was a contemporary of Antoine Blanchard (French, 1910–1988)
Born in 1904 René Zimmermann began his career as a painter at the age of 16. He studied etching and engraving techniques at the Ecole des Arts Décoratifs in Paris. Throughout his life, he was inspired by Paris' scenes, especially Montmartre and Provence. He developed a long friendship with other painters, Utrillo, Vlaminck, Maclet, Kisling, and writers, especially Giono, Carco and Dorgelès for whom he illustrated several books. He was preeminently the painter of Paris of the fifties, which he had loved and known well; his qualities as a painter, in addition to his sensitivity, allowed him to paint the street scenes of that time under their most charming, attractive and real light.
As Blanchard and many artists of this period, René Zimmermann focused on the daily life of Paris and has painted many Street Scene subjects during the 1950’s. His work became highly sought after and collectors from around the world vied to acquire his new works.
Zimmermann’ beautiful depictions of Paris were always in demand and he continued to paint them until his death in 1991
