It is a cityscape painting with dimensions of 73.7 x 92.7 cm, and it currently resides in the Saint Louis Art Museum in St. Louis, Missouri, United States.

The painting depicts a view of the Louvre in Paris on a sunlit morning, rendered with the distinctive brushwork and attention to the effects of light that characterize the Impressionist movement. The scene captures the Seine River bustling with boat activity, while on the riverbank, the bare trees of winter stand in contrast to the warmth of the sunlight. Figures can be seen enjoying a leisurely walk along the river’s promenade, contributing to the scene’s lively atmosphere. Buildings line the far bank of the river, among which the facades of the Louvre are distinguishable. The sky above is a soft blend of light blues and gentle whites, hinting at a clear and serene day. In its entirety, the artwork exudes the vibrancy of city life, portrayed with a sense of immediacy and sensory evocation that invites the viewer to experience the quiet yet dynamic ambiance of the Parisian morning.
