Artist Monet often portrayed this part of the street. It is often depicted on the canvas is this boulevard, but, truth, at different times of the year and even at different times of the day. And because these pictures have value.
In general, this is a new style, a new one then, now known to us a long time ago – impressionism. It is easier to explain this style as follows: what I see and portray. Pissarro, Monet, Manet… These are not all names, many French artists of the late 19th century – early 20th century have tried their hand at least a little in this style.
Again, not all of it stopped. That Monet just in this style of painting and lingered. This canvas depicts the Boulevard des Capucines in the morning or afternoon. And it is clear that the boulevard lives its stormy life.
People roam the wide sidewalk here and there, who are on business, and who are just idle about. And on the roadway carriages or just the most recently appeared first cars move. Similarly, you will not understand at what time of year this canvas is written.
Most likely, this is an early spring, when the snow has not yet descended. There is another canvas, where the same part of the boulevard is shown in the evening, where everything glitters with lights and there are no less people, by the way. But on this canvas one day of the French capital and that part of the boulevard, where there are shops and theaters, cafes and restaurants. The capital city is boiling up, boiling with its unique life.
But not only this boulevard was depicted by the artist. There are also canvases where the master repeatedly depicted the same room at different times of the year and day. And each time the room was visually different.
Different colors, different lighting gave the building a fantastic view. It even creates the feeling that it is painted in these colors, although in reality the building is gray. And what colors it? Nature, the sun, and sometimes fog gives a completely distorted image.
This beauty is fascinating, be it Capuchin Boulevard or something else.
