The Entrance to the Park of Saint-Cloud, Paris, Pieter Rudolph Kleijn, 1809

oil on canvas, h 100cm × w 130cm. More details

Kleijn spent two years in Paris on a grant from King Louis Napoleon. During his time in Paris, he painted the park of the Château de Saint-Cloud, to the west of the city. The low sun casts long shadows across the sandy ground. Behind the trees is the River Seine, with the Pont de Sèvres in the distance. The strolling figures are dwarfed by the imposing rows of trees.
