Stanislas Lépine depicts here the rue Saint-Vincent, between the vineyards of Montmartre and the place du Tertre, close to the artist’s home, rue Fontenelle.

While Montmartre is still an almost isolated village at the gates of the city, far from the modernity of Haussmann’s Paris, two women converse, one leaning against her window, the second in the middle of a cobbled alley, in the preserved intimacy of the Butte.

A cloudy sky veils the foliage of the gardens and the damp grey stone of the walls in a pale light, underlining, with its discreet hues, the quietude of this meeting. More on this paintingStanislas Victor Edouard Lépine (October 3, 1835 – September 28, 1892) was a French painter who specialized in landscapes, especially views of the Seine. Lépine was born in Caen. An important influence in his artistic formation was Corot, whom he met in Normandy in 1859, becoming his student the following year.

Lépine’s favorite subject was the Seine, which he was to paint in all its aspects for the rest of his life. He participated in the first Impressionist exhibition, held at Nadar’s in 1874, although he is generally not considered an Impressionist. His paintings are placid in mood and are usually small in scale. Lépine was awarded the First Prize medal at the Exposition of 1889. He died suddenly in Paris in 1892. More Stanislas Victor Edouard Lépine

I search Art History for Beautiful works that may, or may not, have a secondary or unexpected story to tell. I then write short summaries that grow from my research. Art work is so much more when its secrets are exposed
