Louis Marie de Schyrver was born in Paris on October 12, 1862 in the time when Impressionism started its struggles against the academic manner. He was so talented, that his pictures were exibited in the Paris Salon from the very beginning. There is no wonder as the Parisian society at that time highly appreciated the simple plot with the hint of the beautiful life. Of course, each picture has one or more classic Parisian dame who was leading a nice life involving long walks and a lot of flowers. On the contrast, he pictured flower girls that serve as an opposition to the bourgeois women.
