In recent decades Antoine Blanchard has become on of the most sought after artists of the ‘Paris School of Painters’ reflected by steadily increasing prices on the international art markets. He was was a prolific and successful Neo-Impressionist painter who specialized in nostalgic scenes of Fin de Siècle Paris.

Galien Laloue (1854-1941), Eduard Cortes (1882-1969), Jean Béraud (1849-1935) and Luigi Loir (1845-1916) Blanchard studied the ‘Belle Époque’ as it manifested itself in Paris and painted his impressions with a bold yet lyrical brush.  He was active until his death in 1988. Literature: ‘Antoine Blanchard, his Life and Work’ by A.
