Place du Theatre Francais: Sun Effect is a masterwork painted by Pissarro in his late years. It is an impressive masterpiece that shows the majestic Place du Theatre in Paris. During these years, the artist would often check into a hotel and paint the surrounding areas doing thorough studies of sunlight and flare. He had developed an eye disease that would get worse with the cold weather, so he adapted and started painting the views from windows inside the hotels.
Pissarro was an innovative artist since the beginning of his career. As a painter, he set some significant changes to the way artists would compose their works. He was a crucial figure for the Impressionist movement. Pissarro was the oldest member of this group and the only one that took part in all of the eight exhibitions.
Later in his career, he met two beacons of art history: Paul Signac and Georges Seurat. These two artists had a very different approach to painting. This meeting led him to experiment with a new technique, using Pointillistic patches of colors, as opposed to mixing the color on the palette prior. The chromatic effect was one of the principles of the Post-Impressionist movement, and soon Camille Pissarro mastered this technique, applying it to some of his most famous works.
In 1870, Pissarro fled to London because of the Franco-Prussian war. There, he once again changed his style of painting due to the low acceptance of his Impressionist brushstrokes and to the influence of John Constable and J. M. W. Turner.
Back in France, Camille Pissarro focused his work in urbanscapes. At this point, his health was declining fast. Staying in hotels, he would paint again and again the same scape, to the point where he developed a unique ability to represent seasons of the year or times of the day.
This piece shows Place du Teather during a sunny afternoon. The streets are very busy and completely filled with people, and the buildings are bathed in a golden yellow light. The perspective is fascinating. From the window, there is the main road leading into the horizon, but also some secondary streets that divide the square horizontally.
