Sacre Coeur, Montmartre, Paris, by Pierre Farge (1878-1947)

This majestic presentation of the Sacre Coeur is powerful in its simplicity and directness. Farge takes the newer into the composition via a cobblestone street where we are accompanied by a dog and a few passersby. The stately church is seen through a mosaic of dark branches, and its elongated dome is proudly outlined against a radiant sky. Signed lower right. Framed in classical French frame.

Commentary

"
Farge started exhibiting his works in Paris at the Salon des Tuileries in 1930, and identified with the painters of the Ecole de Paris, a group of artists who had come to France in search of political, religious and artistic freedom.
Among the artists who greatly influenced Farge were Maurice Utrillo and Le Douanier Rousseau, both of whom excelled in creating ‘naïve style’ in painting. By flattening the picture surface and ignoring the tenets of classical perspective, Farge succeeded in creating an innocent, yet childlike view of the world.
Like Utrillo, Farge sought to depict the iconic monuments of Paris, like the Sacre Coeur in Montmartre, Notre Dame de Paris, the Invalides and the Arc de Triomphe. He also painted the busy streets, animated markets and everyday life of fellow Parisians, capturing the many facets of the City of Lights. He utilized muted tonalities consisting of grey, beige, brown and black, reflecting the hues of the Paris sky and adding intimacy and poetic feeling to his work.
