La loterie du manège à Montmartre
(The Riding School Lottery in Montmartre)


Oil on canvas
Signed "C. Malle" (lower left)

The French painter Charles Malle captures a snowy day in Montmartre in this oil on canvas, one of his most favored subjects. Malle is known for his post-impressionistic, nostalgic depictions of Paris, recalling his own childhood in France. In this remarkable work, the artist presents a lively carnival scene. A brightly-colored carousel sits against the stark white backdrop of the snow-covered ground and Montmartre's most famous landmark, Sacré-Cœur Basilica. Boldly painted with confident black lines and swatches of vivid color, the work brings to life the character of Montmartre.

Malle was born in Douai in Northern France and brought up among a family of craftsman. He began his artistic training at the Belgian École des Beaux-Arts where he became enamored with the masters of Flemish art, particularly the peasant-filled snowscapes of Bruegel, an influence keenly felt in the present composition. Malle’s works are set apart by their relatability and sense of childhood wonderment
