For your consideration, a fine oil on boarded canvas painting entitled “Rue Pomme D’Or” by the French painter Roger Joseph Jourdain (1845 - 1918). The painting measures 24cm x 14cm (28cm x 18cm original circa 1940’s period frame) and is in excellent condition with no paint loss or damage. The work is signed “Jourdain” on the work’s left bottom, and further notated on the verso; those notations stating that the piece was a 1949 presentation to a number of friends (named) and was stated that the artist was “B. Jourdain”. The work is, however, by the artist R. Jourdain; this authenticated by the signature of the artist as written on the same reverse side (the signature matches the signature of Roger Jourdain). Roger Joseph Jourdain (1845 - 1918) was a noted French painter and illustrator of the Beux-Art period. Jourdian entered Ecole des Beaux-Art in Paris where he was a pupil of Alecandre Cabanel. Later, Jourdian became the mayor of Rueil-Malmaison (from 1900 to 1906). Jourdain was a focal point in the artist social life of the time, often visiting his neighbor, the sculptor Pierre-Nicolas Turgenev, who had a studio at the Chateau Vert-Bois, the town of Rueil-Malmaison where he often stayed. Other visitors were writers, artists, painters and designers, which included Jean-Louis Forain, Ernest Ange Duez, and Miguel Zamacois.
