Boulevard des Capucines (detail).

c Oil on canvas.
The Boulevard des Capucines is now a landmark in the history of Impressionism. It was painted during the winter of 1873-74 in the third-floor studio of the famous photographer Gaspard Nadar, located at the corner of the Boulevard des Capucines and the Rue Danou. It figured as no. 97 in the first exhibition of the Impressionist artists, held on the vacated premises of the same studio, which opened on April 15, 1874. The public was mostly shocked and some art critics were scandalized by what they saw. Louis Leroy, writing for the journal Charivari, sneered at the "black tongue-lickings" in the lower part of the painting, saying what a joke it was that these crude scratches could be thought to represent people.
