“Blessed are they who see beautiful things in humble places where other people see nothing.” – Camille Pissarro

History

Le Jardin des Tuileries, après-midi, soleil belongs to a series of canvases Camille Pissarro painted from the apartment he rented at 204 rue de Rivoli during his second stay there in 1899 and 1900.  Unlike Monet, Pissarro’s approach to serial painting did not involve methodically working several canvases simultaneously to capture a single motif in varying light and atmospheric conditions. Instead, he varied his point of view — sometimes ever so slightly turning his gaze to the right or left working within a wide range of atmospheric conditions, the motifs completely autonomous and self-sufficient. This particular apartment afforded the opportunity to move from one window to another and three distinct views that included this frontal view of Grand Bassin des Tuilere, another of the Pavillon de Flore and the southern wing Denon wing of the Louvre, and lastly to east the Pavillon de Marsan on the left, the Jardin du Carrousel in the center and the Denon wing in the distance. The possibilities clearly excited the septuagenarian. In December 1898 he wrote his son Lucien that, “we got an apartment opposite the Tuileries with a magnificent view on the garden, the Louvre on the left ,the dome of Invalides on the right, the arrow of Sainte-Clotilde behind the bouquet of chestnut trees — it’s absolutely charming.” (Pissarro, Hayward Gallery, London, 1980, page 146)
