"Pierre Farge (1878-1947) Oil On Canvas Paris Les Invalides 20th Century"We present this poetic living room painting, oil on canvas by the famous landscape painter Pierre Farge (1878-1947), signed, fully restored and with a modern frame specially made to measure.
It is signed lower right, coeval and original.
The large painting takes us to one of the most beautiful cities in the world: Paris, the monument in question is one of the most beautiful and symbolic of the city: Les Invalides. The front view of the Dome of the Invalids is splendid, this royal chapel was built between 1677 and 1706. The interior decorations carried out at that time enhance the glory of Louis XIV, the monarchy and his armies.
Temple of Mars during the Revolution, the Dome church became a military pantheon at the instigation of Napoleon Bonaparte, with the installation of the tomb of Turenne (1800) and a funeral monument of Vauban (1807-1808). In 1800, the First Consul orders to translate the body of Turenne, one of the most famous marshals of France of the Great century, under the Dome in a monumental tomb.
National funerals accompany the return of the ashes of Emperor Napoleon I, transferred to the Invalides on December 15, 1840 while awaiting the construction of the tomb. This was commissioned in 1842 by King Luigi Filippo to the architect Visconti (1791-1853), who had major transformations carried out under the Dome, with an enormous excavation to shelter the tomb. The body of Emperor Napoleon I was deposited there on April 2, 1861.
The details of the painting are almost endless: the green color of the gardens, the perimeter part of the doors and especially the structure of the Parisian monument. The sky is the co-protagonist of this splendid representation, giving a feeling of freshness to the observer.

Pierre Farge (1878-1947)
He was a French street painter, active in the first half of the 20th century. He mainly devotes himself to painting Parisian monuments and landscapes.
Farge began to exhibit his works in Paris at the Salon des Tuileries in 1930 and identified with the painters of the Paris School, a group of artists who came to France in search of political, religious and artistic freedom.
Among the artists who greatly influenced Farge were Maurice Utrillo and Le Douanier Rousseau, who distinguished themselves by creating a "naive style" in painting. By flattening the surface of the image and ignoring the principles of the classical perspective, Farge succeeded in creating an innocent but childish vision of the world.
Like Utrillo, Farge sought to represent the emblematic monuments of Paris, such as the Sacré Coeur in Montmartre, Notre Dame de Paris, Les Invalides and the Arc de Triomphe. He used soft shades of gray, beige, brown and black, which reflect the tones of the Parisian sky and add intimacy and a poetic feel to his work.
