This canvas by its large size and perspective offers the viewer a very special view of Paris.
We are at the very beginning of the boulevard Saint-Germain, with a plunging view on the place de La Concorde.
Parisian painter, Franck Elim is known by the high society for his paintings of famous horses, hypnotic grand prix.
He is also a member of the Society of Painters and Sculptors of Horses.
Of the Parisian views painted by his hand, we know almost none. This one is dated 1940. It is a whole postcard universe that the painter offers: Paris under the snow.
By his perspective, starting from the right of the painting and opening on the whole canvas, the spectator plunges into a Paris where the snow envelops the few people who dare to go out.
In the distance the Concorde with its obelisk and the Sacred Heart that can be heard.
Buses, cars, and the clothes of passers-by typical of the 40s add to the enchantment.
