Edouard Cortes devoted his life and career to the ÒBelle EpoqueÓ of his youth, the period that made Paris a cultural capital. Untouched by the cataclysms of the 20th century, CortesÕs paintings have the quality of dripped candle wax, the accidental beauty of a passing past as crowds of people stroll along the softy lit boulevards. In Porte St. Martin, new snow makes the streetlights and stalls glow with winterÕs beauty.
