Maximilien Luce (French, 1858–1941)
Notre-Dame de Paris, 1900
A stunning vision of Notre-Dame Cathedral, its towers and south facade tipped with the waning light of golden hour, this is also a portrait of Paris and its people. French artist Maximilien Luce toiled to effectively portray the “ceremonies, marriages, people coming and going, the crowds” seen here. Going about their day, they pass along the Quai Saint-Michel, drive horse-drawn carriages, and work on the dredging barges of the Seine.
Luce grew up in a working-class neighborhood of Paris and was trained as an engraver. He studied drawing and painting and went on to create landscapes and scenes of urban life in impressionist and neo-impressionist styles. Politically aligned with the proletariat, Luce contributed prints and illustrations to the anarchist press. In 1894 he was arrested for anarchist activity and spent more than a month in jail. Throughout his career Luce exhibited his work with the Société des Artistes Indépendants. He painted more than a dozen versions of this view, with Notre-Dame de Paris selling at auction in 2011 for more than $4 million.

We absolutely encourage the process of pre-ordering "Coming Soon" items, because it hedges your bet.
You have a better chance of actually getting an item if you pre-order it now. (First come, first served - some exceptions apply.) Our systems automatically fill retail orders on a FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED basis (some exceptions apply).
We don't "allocate" products. (Allocate is a dirty word in this industry that means shipping products to other people before we ship to you... regardless of when you or they ordered.) If you ordered an item when it was first posted on our website, you are FAR more likely to receive it than if you order the same item today.
And if you wait until a later date to order the item, you might never get it at all. That's because your fellow collectors and gift purchasers have pre-ordered every single piece of an item we might be getting. (This is called "PRE-SOLD OUT.") Don't let that happen to you! Don't be left out! Pre-order now!
