Italian Street Scene. 1849

Oil on canvas
45х58 cm

The picture, painted in Italy, is stylistically close to the master's well-known oriental scenes. It is not surprising that for a long time all the catalogues referred to it mistakenly as Street Scene in the East. Decamps' subjects, both Italian and Oriental, are characterised by the generalised treatment of form, sharp contrasts of light and shade, and a special linear rhythm in the composition.
