An Artist’s Afternoon on the Banks of the Seine

Launch Slideshow

A tour-de-force of 19th-century painting, Marie-François Firmin-Girard’s Le dimanche au Bas-Meudon presents an unprecedented opportunity for collectors to acquire a masterpiece of the era. The painting is a celebration of life during the Belle Époque, and this artist leaves no component unexplored, from the still lifes on each table top to the faces, gestures and costumes of friends and family. The painting is also in original, untouched condition, and as far as is known, has never before been reproduced in colour.
