Eugène Galien Laloue ( 1854 - 1941)
Born in Paris on 11th December 1854, Eugène Galien-Laloue studied under his father Charles Laloue, a set designer. His debut at the Paris Salon was in 1877 with oil entitled “en Normandie” at which time he was living in Montmartre. Known almost exclusively as a painter in gouache of Parisian street scenes, Galien Laloue’s early works reflect his traditional training. He painted landscapes, coastal and river scenes in Normandy and around Paris, the Seine and the River Marne. In contrast to his later works, these show a broad technique with significant use of impasto.
