Le Boulevard de Montmartre, Matinée de Printemps - Pissarro


We just learned about the painting Woman with a Bag by German artist Karl Schmidt-Rottluff.

Another famous work of art is Le Boulevard de Montmartre, Matinée de Printemps by Pissarro.

This painting is interesting because the artist painted this same street in Paris for different times of day and seasons.
He painted it in spring, in fall, in winter, at night and with or without lots of people.

He showed a vision of how a busy street can change so much all year long.
