Steamboats in the Port of Rouen

Camille Pissarro French

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 820

On January 20, 1896, when Pissarro arrived for his second extended stay in Rouen, he was already enraptured by "the beautiful motifs of the quays, which will make famous paintings." This is one of several views of the busy port that he painted from the window of his room at the Hôtel de Paris. Across the river in the background may be seen the wharves and warehouses of the working-class Saint-Sever district.
