Brussels, Salon de l'Art Décoratif Français,

Exposition Universelle et Internationale de Bruxelles

, 1910.

A seminal work in Galanis's illustrious career, "Rue des Abbesse" from 1909 -one of his few works that bear a date- marks the artist's early engagement with the then emerging cubist movement and his gradual distancing from fauvist and Nabis influences, as well as the weighty legacy of the Toulouse-Lautrec school.

The artist portrays daily life in Paris during rush hour. The main thoroughfare is identified with Rue des Abbesses in Montmartre, where Galanis resided for two years at no.9 following his return from Berlin in 1909 and preceding his move to 12 Rue Cortot. The first cross street on the right is today's Rue Tholozé, while the next two are Rue Joseph de Maistre and the famed Rue Lepic, frequented by fin-de-siècle artists and intellectuals alike. The store with the light blue awning on the lower left corner is most probably today's Le Villa des Abbesses bistro at the junction of Rue Audran and Rue des Abbesses. Galanis captured his subject in striking detail, including the typical Tabac store signs, roof-top chimneys and striped shop awnings.

We are grateful to Dr. A. Drakogiorgos, scholar of D. Galanis, for the valuable information he gave us about this work.

CATALOGUE NOTE

This work celebrates the beauty and vivacity of Demetrios
Galanis' French wife, Stephanie-Julie Bouvier. Called 'Fanny' by
her intimates, she was a Provençale born in Castès.

Fanny's delicate features and her distinctive, almond-shaped eyes
drew the attention of many admirers; she was also a muse to Henri
Matisse, who captured her beauty and vivacity with similarly
dynamic lines to those of Galanis in his etchings Fanny de face and
Fanny de trois-quarts (fig. 1). Matisse had Fanny sit for these
etchings when Galanis was conscripted into the French army, to
financially aid his friends, as he did for the family of his friend
Juan Gris. Matisse and Galanis were in regular, friendly
correspondence from this time through to 1949, and shared many
similar interests – both were avid musicians, and often played
together, Galanis on the organ and Matisse on the violin.

Picasso, Braque, Rouault, Derain, Utrillo and many other members of
the intelligentsia and avant-garde gathered at Galanis' and Fanny's
studio-cum-home on 12 rue Cortot in Montmartre. Following the
residence of the artists Maurice Utrillo, Raoul Dufy and Suzanne
Valadon, Galanis and Fanny lived in this lively enclave between
1910 and 1964.

This portrait exhibits the influence of these modern pioneers, and
the unusual angle at which Fanny is captured, as well as the
earth-toned palette, are reminiscent of Picasso's Portrait of
Gertrude Stein of 1906.

The present work was painted around the time of Fanny and Galanis'
arrival at the rue Cortot, circa 1910, which was a period of
artistic and emotional richness for the Galanis family: Demetrios
and Fanny's son, Jean-Sébastien, was born that year in Paris.

CATALOGUE NOTE
Dimitris Galanis was a pioneering artist and among the firstGreeks to be accepted by the European avant-garde as one of theirown. A friend of Degas, Matisse, Derain, Braque and Picasso,Galanis embraced and creatively adapted their ideas and othermodernist currents to develop his personal style. Galanis' work wascharacterized by a strong linear quality associated with hisgraphic techniques, as evident in the present work.
Galanis initially studied mathematics at the National TechnicalUniversity in Athens, but finally enrolled at the Higher School ofFine Arts in Athens, where he studied under Nikiforos Lytras. In1899, when he was still a student, he won the first prize in acompetition for cartoons run by the Paris newspaper Le Journal.Upon graduation he went to Paris on a scholarship and studied forsome time at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts under Fernand Cormon. Hecontinued to draw cartoons for the Greek magazines Pinakothiki andPanathinea, and also contributed illustrations to the Germanperiodicals Simplicissimus and Lustige Blätter. In 1914 Galanisjoined the Foreign Legion, took French nationality and wastransferred to an infantry regiment. In the course of his postingsduring World War I he was sent to Corfu in 1916. On his return toParis in 1918 Galanis reoccupied his studio in the Rue Corot; thiswas frequented by Picasso, Matisse, Braque and Derain, and hereGalanis installed a 17th-century press bequeathed to him by Degas.In 1919 Galanis exhibited at the Salon d'Automne to greatacclaim, which led to numerous one man shows in Paris, Athens, NewYork and Egypt in the 1920s. Having taught for some years at theAcadémie André Lhote, he ran his own school of engraving after1930. In 1945 he was appointed a professor at the Ecole desBeaux-Arts and in the same year was elected to the AcadémieFrançaise. In 1950 he was awarded the French Légion d'honneur.
