Félix Vallotton (Swiss, 1865–1925). Street Scene in Paris (Coin de rue à Paris), 1895. The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. Robert Lehman Collection, 1975 (1975.1.736) | Félix Vallotton made a significant contribution to the graphic arts in Paris in the last half of the 1890s, where he painted this charming gouache of pedestrian traffic on a bustling boulevard. His "snapshots" of fin-de-siècle Paris laid out a sharp visual critique of modern bourgeois society.
