About the print:Paris has been celebrated in numerous songs, poems, books, movies and paintings. To the French, Paris is the center of the universe. To tourists, it is still "Gay Paris" producing an instant image of sidewalk cafes and strolling lovers. To Liudmila Kondakova, Paris evokes "a sense of nostalgia and romance with a touch of melancholy." Notre Dame at Dawn, the artist's newest limited edition serigraph, is a spectacular depiction of her feelings translated through a brilliant palette of color and accompanied by breathtaking detail. The broad boulevard opens before us allowing us to take part in this special moment in time. The city lights are glistening at dawn and activity is still evident in the Cafe Chez Louisette with its glowing rose walls. The curvilinear succession of tiny decorated storefronts includes quaint Parisian cafes, galleries, bakeries, specialty markets and cheese shops, each so inviting you could not imagine mission even one. Up above the stone mosaic street-front, the Parisian rooftops loom high into the sky and are shaded in tones of periwinkle and cameo. The monumental landmark cathedral, Notre Dame, is distinctly viewed in the light of dawn. In the distance, overlooking the quai, we see an elderly couple that has stopped to celebrate this moment in time. They know life is precious and that moments such as this are to be cherished. The panoramic view of this Parisian neighborhood invites the viewer into the glory of Paris. You find yourself peering in the windows, taking in the romance of the city and celebrating the beauty of life. We are lucky to have such a place to visit both in reality and our imagination. Notre Dame at Dawn is a beautiful representation of the exquisite talent and workmanship for which Liudmila Kondakova is recognized. "Her images are irresistibly inviting with a timeless quality that recognizes the history of the place while at the same time offering a fresh new perspective."
