Abstract

To modern eyes, Monet's painting records truthfully the appearance of a crowded street scene viewed from a distance. But at the time of its creation, the Boulevard des Capucines disturbed the conventional notion of a stable, measured environment as represented in traditional 19th-century French painting. Monet's painting and the other pictures exhibited with it--by artists such as Renoir, Sisley, Cezanne and Degas--implied a willful rejection of the officially learned craft of painting taught by the Academy and hallowed within the institutional framework of the Salon system.
