Eugene Galien LALOUE
(1854 - 1941)
Eugène Galien Laloue was particularly adept at establishing several identities, since over the course of his career he worked under many pseudonyms eg J. Lievin, E. Galiany, L. Dupuy, E. Bardin and Dominique. While these are confirmed names that he used, there is the possibility that he used other names as well. Why the artist went to such great lengths to perplex audiences and historians is the question that remains to be answered. Despite preoccupation with the reclusive nature of this man, he depicted Paris and the surrounding landscape with his cool palette; in doing so he became another recorder of popular Parisian life. He balanced his architectural interest in Paris with several landscape views and was an equally if not more proficient draughtsman.

Born in Paris on December 11, 1854 to Charles and Endoxie Laloue. In 1871 he enlisted in the army and by 1874 the French Railway hired him as an illustrator depicting the rail track that was being laid from Paris to the provinces. Concurrently he began painting the surrounding landscapes as well. He began painting views of Paris and exhibited for the first time in 1876 at the Museum of Reims, showing Le quai aux fleurs par la neige (Flower Market along the Seine under the Snow). The following year he exhibited for the first time at the annual Parisian Salon. By 1878 he was exhibiting at the Salon and became a frequent exhibitor through 1889, displaying both Paris street scenes and views in Normandy.
He had a reclusive personality, which also may explain the reasons behind his numerous pseudonyms. He did not like to travel and many of his views of other cities or countries were inspired by postcards and photographs.
He was an active participant in the annual Parisian Salons until 1889 . By 1892 Eugène married, Ernestine Bardin. In 1904 Eugène, once again, began exhibiting at the Paris Salon, along with exhibitions throughout the country, including: Toulon, Angers, St. Quentin, Roubaix, Dijon, Saint-Etienne, Monte Carlo, Nogent sur Marne and Bordeaux.
