An Artist in His Studio

View from an Artist's Studio by Pascal Dagnan-Bouveret

 "Paris spreads away to the horizon her great seed plot, sown with innumerable houses, so small in the distance that one might hold them in the palm of one hand. Paris, vision at once monstrous and sublime, colossal crucible wherein bubbles increasingly that strange mixture of pains and pleasures of active forces and fevered ideals." —Paul Gsell
