November 1923, 38 x 46 cm, Chalk pastel on paper. Signed lower right.

Description

This chalk pastel - Notre Dame, Paris - is a splendid example of Barnoin at his best. The gleaming cathedral, dazzling sunshine and luminous river contrast with the ordinary life on the shore. The piece and its fine frame are in excellent condition. The popularity of Barnoin’s works has grown in the past ten years, and his work will undoubtedly hold its value through time.

Barnoin studied with Charles Emile Dameron and Luc-Olivier Merson. He won an Honorable Mention in the Paris Salon of 1909, a Silver Medal at the Paris Salon in 1921 and the Gold Medal at the 1935 Paris Salon. Barnoin is known for his detailed street scenes and evocative marine subjects. He spent a great deal of time in the small coastal towns of Brittany.
