signed lower right ‘G. Lapchine’ inscribed ‘G. Lapchine, 6 rue Aumont Thiéville’ (on the reverse of the chassis) oil on paper mounted on canvas 114.3 x 146.3 cm Post-impressionist Russian painter from the Paris school, Lapchine learned his skills in Fernand Cormon and Léon Lhermitte’s ateliers. Often exposed at the French Artists Salon, he showed a profound inspiration for the Impressionism movement, especially through his lights’ nuances over the seasons, his effervescent palette for morning views and oblique golden hour colors for evening scenes.
