Siobhán McKenna Montplaisir was born in Cork, Ireland and studied at the Royal Hibernian Academy in Dublin prior to settling in Paris. This Parisian street scene is representative of her late Impressionist tendencies on the eve of World War I. She continued to paint during the war years, while devoting herself to husband and family, and returned briefly to Ireland following establishment of the Republic in 1919. Her work is little known outside Ireland.

“Paris Street Scene” came to Agincourt with Kurt Bernhard when he married Grace Tabor.
