ANTOINE BLANCHARD, 1910 – 1988, is the pseudonym that french painter MARCEL MASSON chose, to experiment with nostalgic views of paris based on photo reference that he had collected from the turn of the century, the BELLE EPOCHE period. like EDOUARD CORTES and EUGENE GALIEN-LALOUE, LUIGI LOIR and JEAN BERAUD, he started to paint paris street scenes, often the same views in different seasons and weather situations. he became immensely popular and his style was faked by a lot of artists, using even his signature since the name was not copyrighted. different from CORTES expressive painting style BLANCHARD used smaller brush strokes characteristic to the great masters of the impressionist period, he used more vibrant colors and his motifs with pedestrians in period fashion are more alive than compared to his predecessors.
