This is so beautiful!
A 1950s original vision of the Tuileries Gardens in Paris, with le Louvre Palace on the left, the Carrousel Arch in the center, and the Eiffel Tower in the distance.
The colors are to die for! A rare harmony of fresh ultramarine and emerald green.
The piece is a watercolor signed "Eug(ene) Paumier" in the lower left corner.
The Carrousel Arch is a small arch inside the Tuileries, across from the Pyramid. It was built in 1806 and is supposed to look Roman! It is a very charming monument, covered with pastel pink marble, far smaller than the Arch of Triumph, the imposing building at the top of the Champs Elysees.
Artists paint the Carrousel less often than other Paris monuments, but when they do, the works are very special, as they seem to be impressed by its delicate beauty, and the sheer poetry of its surroundings.
