On Monday we added a bright and beautiful Paris street scene by Edouard Cortes (1882-1969) to the available inventory. We are pleased to annouce that it quickly found a new home.
The rue Royale is a short street in Paris that runs between the Place de la Concorde and the Place de la Madeleine. One of the most famous addresses on this street is that of Maxim’s restaurant. Founded on the rue Royale in 1893 by Maxime Gaillard, Maxim’s has been representative of the distinctive ‘art of living’ in Paris; a blend of distinction, lightheartedness, and innovation. It has become a favorite among the elite in the fields of finance, arts and politics. Designer Pierre Cardin bought the restaurant in 1981, giving its reputation an additional boost.
