Boulevard des Capucines

Claude Monet (French, 1840-1926) – Boulevard des Capucines, c.1873-74 (Oil on canvas, Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, Kansas City, Missouri) – Boulevard des Capucines captures a scene of the hustle and bustle of Parisian life… Applying very little detail, Monet uses short, quick brushstrokes to create the “impression” of people in the city alive with movement… (Monet painted two views from this location…)
