The Boulevard Montmartre at Night by Camille Pissarro
This gorgeous depiction of Paris set in 1897 was painted by the French Impressionist painter Camille Pissarro. He combined an incredible blue-black sky, beautifully lined buildings vanishing into a point far off, and a road lit by street lights to create this Impressionist masterpiece. It is titled “The Boulevard Montmartre at Night”.
