Stein, Georges

Georges Stein is considered a Paris Boulevard painter and water colorist from the French school. She was born circa. 1870. However, there is confusion as to whether she was born in London or Paris. Since most of her paintings depict the wonderfully colorful streets of Paris, I would place her birth in France, as do the French.

Georges Stein’s paintings are filled with movement, color, the smells and the sounds found only on an atmospheric wet street in the heart of Paris. She uses her genius to render each works in pastel, watercolor, and gouache, which very few artists can master. She masterfully creates scene that enables the viewer to feel like they are participating in the every day hustle and bustle of the streets.

As an art dealer/broker/consultant for many years, I write this recommendation for Solomon Cohen with utmost appreciation for, and confidence in, his service as a conservator of fine art and for his acumen as an appraiser.

My experience working with Mr. Cohen encompasses approximately eight (8) years now. He has performed every challenge I brought to him with absolute professionalism, courtesy, timeliness and impeccable technical skill. In addition, he is a scholar, poet, researcher, a noteworthy artist himself, and the absolute gentleman. All of these elements are incorporated into his analysis of a project, and then literally into the working situation of restoring the work to its original state and/or intent of the work of art itself.

Further, I do not hesitate to refer Mr. Cohen directly to my clients for their art requirements, either for restoration or appraisal services. He has proven to be entirely trustworthy and reliable in each situation. I am comfortable knowing that all of my clients needs are handled with the same care and excellence of service without deference to actual value.

For any additional information, please feel free to contact me.
