After spending six years in rural Éragny, Pissarro returned to Paris, where he painted several series of the grands boulevards. Surveying the view from his lodgings at the Grand Hôtel de Russie in early 1897, Pissarro marveled that he could “see down the whole length of the boulevards” with “almost a bird’s-eye view of carriages, omnibuses, people, between big trees, big houses that have to be set straight.” ()
