Street Corner, from the series "Some Aspects of Parisian Life"

Pierre Bonnard French

Not on view

Like Ando Hiroshige, Bonnard captured the animated life of the city in casual scenes of crowded boulevards, bridges, and back streets. Often employing an elevated bird's-eye view that scattered silhouetted figures across the surface of a picture, both artists were ever on the lookout for the anecdotal and picturesque in the urban scheme.
