Bright Impressionistic Paintings

Édouard Leon Cortès was a French impressionist artist of French and Spanish ancestry. He is known as “Le Poete Parisien de la Peinture” or “the Parisian Poet of Painting” because of his beautiful and diverse Paris cityscapes in a variety of weather and night settings. He also painted many landscapes and interiors in the Normandy and Brittany areas.

His paintings are created with impressionistic brushstrokes and bright colors; even when he paints his evening scenes, Cortès always adds a few of his signature colors – red, yellow and blue – in a window, shop sign or gas lantern.
