Rue Saint-Honoré: Camille Pissarro

Camille Pissarro: Rue Saint-Honoré

Rue Saint-Honoré is one of 15 pictures painted by Camille Pissarro in the winter of 1897-8 from his hotel window in Paris. It is remarkable for its impressionistic depiction of the people, carriages and buildings; and for the brilliant glossy application of paint that shows the street and square sodden with rain. Rue Saint-Honoré is in central Paris in the 1st arrondissement running almost parallel to the Seine.

Camille Pissarro’s Rue Saint-Honoré is in the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City, Missouri.
