  Charles Adams Platt   (1861-1933)

 
  RUE DE MONT CENIS, MONTMARTRE [PARIS], 1884. Rice 50. Signed, dated, titled, and numbered (52) in the plate. Platt had rented a studio in Paris in the mid-1880s, and his close friend, Stephen Parrish, visited him there. They had a lively artist's circle in Paris--angst and suffering weren't their style. Rue de Mont Cenis is one of the small streets in the Montmartre area and can still be found on Paris maps. This is beautifully drawn and a strong impression, in perfect condition.
