Camille Pissarro (1830-1903), friend of Monet, Renoir, and Cezanne, is probably most famous for his collection of Paris scenes, such as this one that I tried to copy. "Boulevard Montmartre at Night 1897," which is on display at the National Gallery in London.

But I also saw "Boulevard Montmartre on a Sunny Afternoon 1897" at the Hermitage in St. Petersburg, Russia. There are also "Boulevard Montmartre on a Cloudy Morning" (National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne, Australia) and "Boulevard Montmartre on a Winter Morning" (Metropolitan Museum of Art, NYC, USA), both also created in 1897.

When Pissarro was older, he painted indoors to protect his eyes, in rooms with a view, preserving in oil, like Monet, how the light at different times of day and season changed the same view. I am becoming more and more fascinated with light and shadows, and I loved climbing into Pissarro's "Boulevard Montmartre at Night."

Happy music and art, Cinder LeDell
