Original oil on original canvas, signed lower left.
Paris, the Pont Saint-Michel animated by various figures that we can easily guess and the majestic Notre-Dame Cathedral, a little further away.
To the left of the bridge, the Boulevard du Palais leads us to the Ile de la Cité bordered by the famous Quai des Orfèvres; to the right, we head towards the no less famous Place Saint-Michel. Illustrious site that Marcel ANSELME executes here admirably, in a slightly "blurred" style, a trademark of the painter that we find in most of his landscapes, where the details are not lacking nor even the green touch on the right side of the work. Pretty soft and bright colors, a very pleasant and very interesting painting from the point of view of pictorial technique.

DIMENSIONS : Unframed : 46 x 61 cm - Framed : 60,5 x 5 x 75,5 cm approx.

PROVENANCE : Recognized french public auction house (from private collection).

Painting : Excellent general condition (a few rare small cracks, a few tiny paint splashes (small white dots) and a tiny pinhole at the top right in the edge (natural flaw in the canvas)).
Frame : gilded/coppered and molded frame, with interior frieze with vertical streaks, in good overall condition (age wear marks and some slight lacks) - Nice patina - The frame is slightly warped but this does not affect the frame of the painting (stretcher).
