About Place Saint Lazare

The artwork “Place Saint Lazare” created by Camille Pissarro in 1893 is an oil on canvas painting belonging to the Impressionism movement. Its dimensions are 38 x 46 cm, and it depicts a cityscape. Currently, this art piece is in a private collection, signifying both its esteemed value and the private appreciation it garners.

The artwork captures the vibrant and bustling atmosphere of Saint Lazare, a locale resonant with activity and movement. In a characteristic Impressionist manner, Pissarro utilizes loose brushwork and a bright palette to convey the ephemeral effects of light and color, effectively capturing a moment in time. The composition is teeming with life, featuring an array of figures and carriages that populate the urban space. A central tram can be observed crowded with passengers, emphasizing the modernity of Parisian life at the time. The figures are rendered with swift, gestural strokes, implying their movement rather than detailing their individual features. The fragmented, dappled application of paint on the canvas reflects the bustling vitality of the city, highlighting the artist’s dedication to portraying contemporary life through his distinct perceptual lens.
