About this artwork

After a period of experimentation with the Neo-Impressionist style developed by Georges Seurat, Camille Pissarro returned to the loose, multidirectional brushstrokes that he had used in his earlier Impressionist works. He also revisited an Impressionist subject that his colleagues had all but abandoned by the 1890s—the modern city. This bustling scene, alive with the noise and movement of traffic and pedestrians, was the view from his window at the Hôtel Garnier in Paris, where he stayed for a few weeks early in 1893. The building at the left edge of the canvas is the Gare Saint-Lazare.
