An 1875 oil on canvas, The Great Boulevards, by Pierre-Auguste Renoir (1841-1919), the French impressionist painter. Paris was significantly remodelled in the second half of the 19th century, and one of the results was its now-famous wide boulevards. The bustling streets where all classes could meet were a favourite subject of the impressionists. (Philadelphia Museum of Art, USA)
