Georges Stein was a French painter who is best known for her views of Paris and London especially during the Belle Epoque Era which afforded her the opportunity to capture the glamour, the excitement, and the elegance of this “Golden Era” of peace, prosperity and advancement. Her paintings recreate the haute couture, the social mores, and leisure activities of native Parisians and Londoners. The result is an intimate and yet provocative window into a seductive time in history with illustrious buildings and monuments, dazzling ladies, grand gentlemen, uniformed officers, children escorted by nannies—all captured at various work, social, leisure and play pursuits.
