“Boulevard Montmartre: Afternoon, Sunshine” by Camille Pissarro became part of a thirteen artwork series of the famous Boulevard. Pissarro painted it in 1897 after renting a room at the Grand Hotel de Russie in Paris with a perfect view.
Pissarro wanted to capture the true essence of the busy Parisian street. From his elevated hotel balcony, he obtains a bird’ s-eye view of the people, carriages, and life that passed before him.
Each painting in the “Boulevard Montmartre Series” depicts the same scene and view in different climatic conditions and at different times of the day.
This painting depicts Paris’ life during the working hours of the day full of activity and purpose. This image portrays a dynamic urban landscape, captured by Pissarro’s rapid brushwork.
