Camille Pissarro paintings in Geocoded Art

The Place du Havre, Paris

painting by Camille Pissarro (1830-1903). It seems that Pissaro painted everything he saw: still life, portraits, terrain, city life, country life, great buildings, industrial innovation, unspoiled nature. The common element is some optimism, a  sense that the artist was pleased with everything he saw. This is a curious framing, to show only a part of the door to the station; the subject is really the life that swirls around it, like painting the rapidly changing surface of water to connote a surging river.
