Jardin De Luxembourg is a c. 1915 decorative panel by the painter Louis Abel-Truchet (1857-1918). The scene depicts children playing in the Jardin De Luxembourg, located on the left bank of the Seine River in Paris. It features a young boy playing with his toy sailboat while a girl watches on holding her hoop and stick. The Jardin De Luxembourg was created in 1612 by Marie de'Medici, the widow of King Henry IV of France to accompany the Luxembourg Palace. Today the gardens are public property, owned by the French Senate, which meets in the palace building. In the background of the artwork, Truchet includes the palace building as well as some of the statuary, which were added in 1848.

Louis Abel-Truchet was known for painting many scenes of French life in Paris during the Belle Epoque. He was a student at the Academie under Julian Lefebvre and Benjamin Constant. Along with painting, Truchet mastered illustration, etching, and lithography. He served in World War I as deputy and head of the camouflage division. His work gives us insight into the ideal lives of French society.

  • If there's anything you want to know about posters, vintage or more modern, there's nothing Mr Ross doesn't know. His open and friendly manner helps one to choose the most suitable material whether for decoration, investment or whatever... I can't recommend him highly enough.

  • Just wanted to say thanks for the poster. You sent it on Thursday and it was delivered the following Monday (nearly quicker than it took us to get home) to our house in Perth, Australia. We have just had it framed. We love it; it goes perfectly with the room.
