Study of a Cab at All Saints about 1910 Adolphe Valette 1876 - 1942 Oil on board Valette's two large cab paintings on display, like most of his Impressionist style works, were created in his studio partly from sketches or freely executed studies made on the spot. Only four cab studies by Valette are known of which this is the most atmospheric. Although not directly related to a specific work, it perfectly exemplifies the transformation process which took place from street to studio.
