Eugène Galien-Laloue ( 1854 - 1941): Paris, Bustling Square of Moulin Rouge (detail), Gouache on paper, 19 x 31 cm, Private Collection A typical Galien-Laloue painting depicts sidewalks and avenues crowded with people or tourists mingling before the capital's monuments. Eugène Galien-Laloue often represents the most picturesque places in Paris: The Grands Boulevards, The flower markets of La Madeleine; La Conciergerie, The banks of the Seine, Notre Damme or Moulin Rouge. The nineteenth century profoundly changed the appearance of the city and the realistic painter will focus on representing men in their daily lives. Galien-Laloue's works are perfect 'platforms' to convey and present us these Parisian scenes of Belle Epoque.
