Childe Hassam was a renowned American impressionist whose early work in illustration paid enough for a Paris apartment near Place Pigalle, where he fully embraced Parisian life. At one point he even sub-let Renoir’s old studio. Whilst he studied at the Académie Julian, he was not swayed by the academic approach to art, and preferred the emotional appeal of his impressionist creations.

This is a small 10cm by 15cm sketch after Hassam’s Rue Montmartre, Paris. Following a rough pencil drawing, a few washes of watercolour were laid down, followed by some toning from a pencil and a few lines from a pen where the edges became too lost.
