An American Rousseau depicts Paris

Robert Sivard, an American from New York who has lived in Paris for three years, depicts our city with twenty-eight paintings in the spirit of the great master, Rousseau.

The Craven Gallery exhibits these ‘naive’ works which have titles like a list of the shops of Paris: La Boucherie Chevaline, L’Ebeniste, La Pedicure, La Blanchisseuse, Le Charcutier du quartier, Les Bains Saint-Denis.

Like Rousseau, Robert Sivard is a diplomat; he works for he Information Service of the American Embassy. His young wife, Ruth is also employed there.

They have a son named James. He speaks French better than his parents. He was born in Paris; he is two years old.
