About this artwork

Painted during one of Childe Hassam’s lengthy and ambitious working trips to Europe, View of a Southern French City depicts the Mediterranean’s characteristic pastel hues. The scene illustrates a bustling, open-air market in a village square, although the precise location is unknown. Perhaps one of the most nomadic of the American Impressionists, Hassam traveled and painted extensively throughout Europe and the eastern United States. The brightly colored flickers of paint used here to render the figures both enliven the canvas and showcase the artist’s affinity to the artistic movement.
