LOVE IN THE NEW YEAR

THE MEETING ON THE BRIDGE

 

 

Emile Friant

Emile Friant, Les Amoureux, 1888, oil on canvas, Musee des Beaux Arts, Nancy, France

The pleasures and cares of the luckiest ambition, even of limitless power, are nothing next to the intimate happiness that tenderness and love give.

Stendhal. The Red and the Black

The portraits and genre scenes of French painter Emile Friant (1863-1932) are often marked by an almost photographic approach in style.  Stendhal (1783-1842) is one of the most honored writers of French letters, particularly for his novel The Red and the Black.
