Flower market in Paris. Oil on canvas. 50 x 60cm. Left: Georges Stein signed below. Frame.

Both in France as well as London-based artist Georges stone is mainly used for the painting of the Paris and London Boulevards of the Belle Époque known. On the Vita of the artist is evident in the art-historical literature only a little, but the painter, in his creative period was very productive and left behind a large Oeuvre. The impressionist style Works in Oil, pastel, partly as a watercolor or Gouache executed and show everyday scenes from the turbulent life of the Paris city core. With an intense, pure bright color palette, the painter always places the French metropolis, which are firmly anchored in the collective memory of the viewer.
Also, the present painting shows a view of the City, which can be classified as a viewer, quite in the Paris city core: a flower market is in close proximity to the Conciergerie along the Seine. With a dappled variety of colors from Red, Green, Blue and yellow tones of the flowers along the Quai de l’Horloges are staggered White with a direct view to the Bank and stand in strong contrast to the cloudy sky. In addition, the flowers, the pastose colour of the lamp in direct contrast to the verblauendem Background, by the view of the Île de la Cité in the direction of the Pont Neuf dissolves. Between the Palace and the colourful sea of flowers stroll the Parisian citizens. Georges Stein painted the Motif of the flower market on the Quai de l’Horloges for the umpteenth time.
