The Quay de Paris in Rouen, Johannes Bosboom, 1839

The Quay de Paris in Rouen, Johannes Bosboom, 1839

oil on canvas, h 88cm × w 105cm. More details

During the Romantic era, the picturesque French city of Rouen in Normandy was a popular destination for artists. They were fond of medieval architecture and considered the great cathedrals to be an expression of pure Christian faith. The houses along the quay in this painting are situated closely together, dwarfed by the cathedral towers rising up behind them.
