In the central perspective centre of this painting is the triumphal arch in Paris, to which the wide Avenue des Champs Elysées, tapering towards the centre, leads. On the busy shimmering street, flanked on each side by an avenue of trees and street lamps, several cars, a few horse-drawn carriages and numerous passers-by, mostly dressed in fine clothing. The high blue sky clears up behind and above the triumphal arch and thus emphasizes its significant position. (1240124) (18)
