Pissarro started his career painting rural life and miniature landscapes of the countryside of France. Since the beginning, he was controversial and subversive and was one of the most important members of the Impressionism. Pissarro was also the only member to take part in all of the eight exhibitions of the group. He had a long path, and eventually, when faced with the astonishing art of Paul Signac and Georges Seurat, he started studying their new approach to painting.
Finally, he mastered the Pointillistic technique of creating an atmosphere through little patches of colors as opposed to previously mixing the colors on the palette. This happens when the Impressionist movement starts to lose popularity, and Pissarro began studying the principles of Post-Impressionism.
There, he was heavily influenced by the two British artists John Constable and J. M. W. Turner. They would paint out in the open and defend the importance of this practice to develop a realistic approach to lighting. Pissarro mastered this technique and produced a series of urbanscapes around London.
When he came back to Paris, he then turned his focus from the French interiors and started painting beacons of the city. However, at this point, he had contracted a severe eye disease that would not allow him to paint in the cold weather.
Pissarro started checking into hotels around the city and painting his surroundings from the views from his windows. Boulevard des Italiens: Morning, Sunlight is one of the great examples of this series. This painting shows not only the gorgeous city and its most relevant landmarks but also the subtle changes in the light at a particular time of the day or season of the year.
This painting shows the sunlight starting to shine onto the buildings; just soft rays are beginning to display on the busy streets filled with people, in the gaps between the buildings and the treetops.
The color palette is subtle; the painting is mostly covered in faint tones of yellow and white. The light tones contrast with the dark tree trunks of the dry winter trees. Even though it seems cold, the streets are busy and full of people.

Note that for safety reasons we can only frame up to a certain size. Once the maximum size is reached the framing option is automatically disabled.
If you are planning to frame your painting yourself,
use an existing frame, or frame it locally, you may choose to order your painting with a stretching service,
meaning that it will arrive mounted on wooden bars.
If you're considering not framing your painting at all, you may opt for a Gallery Wrap. The term Gallery Wrap refers to the way the canvas is stretched, which is by wrapping it around thick stretcher bars, about 1.5 inch thick, with the canvas being secured to the back rather than the sides of those bars.

All orders ship express and usually arrive within 4-5 days from the shipping date. Due to shipping restraints, many of our framed, stretched, and oversize paintings may take 6-21 days for arrival depending on the safest route determined by the postal service.
