Signed “H. Claude Pissarro” (lower left)
Oil on canvas

This spectacular Post-Impressionist composition by French artist Hugues Claude Pissarro offers a vibrantly colored view of Parisians walking before the Porte St-Martin arch. The idea of Europe’s romantic past has provided endless inspiration for the artist. In many of his works, including the present painting, Pissarro invites the viewer on a journey back in time. His canvases are often populated with figures in Victorian dress and historic details such as horses and carts, early model automobiles and cobblestone streets. This work, entitled Midi, Porte St-Martin, mardi, demonstrates the artist's affinity for the past, depicting throngs of 19th-century people and horse buggies crowding the grand boulevards of Paris.

As the grandson of Impressionist painter Camille Pissarro and the son of Paulémile Pissarro, H. Claude Pissarro belongs to a long and storied line of artists. Keeping the artistic legacy of the Pissarro family alive, H. Claude was taught to paint informally at home by his father. He exhibited a talent for art at an early age, exhibiting his first works at the young age of 14. H. Claude Pissarro’s works have been exhibited and collected throughout the world, and they remain highly coveted for their intimate size and relatable subject matter.

The work is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity signed by the artist.
