Constantin Guys
La Loge de l'opéra by Constantin Guys.

Constantin Guys, Ernest-Adolphe-Hyacinthe-Constantin, (Vlissingen December 3, 1802 - Paris Dec. 13, 1892) was a Crimean War correspondent, water color painter and illustrator for British and French newspapers. Baudelaire called him the "painter of modern life," and wrote a long essay on Guys in which he extensively praised his works, under the pseudonym "Monsieur G".[1] Robert de Montesquiou wrote a review[2] of Guys that acknowledged Baudelaire's essay, compared Guys favorably to Whistler, and emphasized his portrayal of details of women's clothing, and horse carriages.[3] His subjects were Second French Empire life. In the Dutch novel "Au pair" by W.F. Hermans, one of the main characters is fascinated by Constantin Guys.
