Camille Pissarro was a talented artist and one of the most relevant figures of the Impressionist movement. The artist was the first member of the Impressionist groups and was the sole member to take part in every edition of the eight exhibitions.
Several times, Pissarro provided a significant change in the course of the history of art. He was subversive and had innovative techniques. Later in his career, the artist met Signac and Seurat, and once again, his art went through a substantial change. He learned the principles of Post-Impressionism and started studying the technique of Pointillism. That’s when he started using hundreds of small colored patches as opposed to having pre-mixed colors on his palette. This type of method would create an entirely different atmosphere for his work.
In 1870, Europe suffered from the Franco-Prussian War, and Pissarro didn’t have French nationality. This lack of citizenship forced the artist to move to a village near London. The moving process was harsh on the artists, and he spent the first few years there immensely frustrated, feeling like his art was being rejected continuously.
But then, he had two encounters that changed the course of his career once again. First, he met with the art dealer Paul Durand-Ruel, that would become his work partner and help him sell his life for the rest of his career. Second, he encountered the two beacons at British painting at that time: John Constable and J. M. W. Turner. The two artists would defend the importance of painting out in the open, arguing that this would provide the artist with the master skill of creating perfect lighting and atmosphere. Pissarro learned immensely from them.
On his way back to Paris, he had great mastery in creating scenes and environments representing the emotions and the times of the day precisely. This painting is a beautiful example of it. Pissarro painted the Boulevard Montmartre again and again. With this, he managed to refine his skill in differing parts of the day and moments of the year. This exciting scene shows the wide street soaked in a faint rain but still bathed in warm golden sunlight.
Despite the rain, the street keeps busy. Wagons and people are coming and going through the sidewalk and under the trees. The trees are nearly bare with few thin yellow leaves on their tops.
