Les Grands Boulevards – théâtres – gares

The Grands Boulevards by Eugène Galien Laloue

The city capital was reshaped by the grandiose work ordered by Napoleon III and carried out by Haussmann. Cut out in medieval Paris, large thoroughfares were created, among them the Grands boulevards with their numerous theatres and cafés. Galien-Laloue - ses oeuvres

« The unfortunate Parisians. Work in the city is going so rapidly that when they leave home in the morning they are not even certain to find their way back in the evening. They are the actors, witnesses and victims of these transformations before enjoying the good side of it. »

Galien-Laloue - ses oeuvres

The Grands boulevards

« Today the opening of large streets with lines too straight for the artist’s eye but se comforting for pedestrians, enables us to walk carefree for a long time. There is non need to worry about losing one’s way and having constantly to enquire of local errand-boy and gracious greengrocers’ as to the right direction.
This is a real blessing to gave plenty of space and go along the road without listening or looking at anything – yet as pleasant as this way of day-dreaming may be it doesn’t prevent you from absorbing the sights and sounds of the city. »

George Sand
