Pissarro’s early impressionist works shocked contemporary critics, accustomed, as they were, to the strict conventions of academic realism. His loose, dabbling brushwork sought to capture the essence of the subject, rather than its details. In an era when historical, mythological and religious themes rested at the very pinnacle of fine art, he painted the everyday lives of ordinary people. Rather than blending his pigments to precision, he juxtaposed complementary colors to create bright, vibrant contrasts, and avoided the dampening effect of black by painting shadows in the reflected light of their surroundings. If academic realists were uneasy about the advent of photography, Pissarro and the impressionists had no cause for concern; their object was not to represent the world as it exists, but as it is perceived.

Boulevard des Italiens, Morning, Sunlight is one of Pissarro’s later works; the product of a renewed interest in impressionism following his collaboration with Georges Seurat and Paul Signac. The pointillist technique, in which small patches of pure color blend together when viewed from a distance, had proven far too mechanical for Pissarro, who recounted that “It was impossible to be true to my sensations and consequently to render life and movement, impossible to be faithful to the effects, so random and admirable, of nature, impossible to give an individual character to my drawing, [that] I had to give up.” According to the art historian John Reward, his works of this late period became “more subtle, his color scheme more refined, his drawing firmer,” as he “approached old age with an increased mastery.”

Product Information

Expect crisp detail and vivid color from our giclée process fine art prints. We use archival pigment inks on cotton fiber paper to achieve a wide color gamut, deep blacks and beautiful tonal transitions. Unlike posters, they will not fade or yellow, but maintain their original quality for as long as you own them.

How to Frame

Historical artworks were produced in whatever shapes and sizes best suited the artists and their patrons, and these rarely correspond to the proportions of modern, mass-produced frames. Most reproductions sold on the web are cropped to an arbitrary standard, compromising the integrity of the original artwork. We solve this by using accent borders to make up any differences in proportion.

Framing may be as simple as inserting the print into a standard size frame with the borders showing. In many cases, our customers choose to have them matted. Borders allow space for framers to mount the print while covering little, if any, of the artwork. Our images are sized to provide desirable mat widths in common frames.

Sizes 9” x 12”, 12” x 16”, and 16” x 20” are designed to be matted in larger frames, such as 11” x 14”, 16” x 20” and 20” x 24”, respectively. Larger prints may be matted in frames of equal size, the borders corresponding to the shape of the mat. Where the artwork is unusually square or narrow, other sizes may be preferred.

If our sizing does not meet your requirements, we provide customization free of charge. Please contact us to discuss the details.
