This stunning nocturne scene by Impressionist artist Erna Hoppe Kinross shows a bridge over the River Seine in Paris in the hazy moonlight of twilight. The warm spots of occasional light sources, including a passing carriage and the burning streetlamps break up the overall tones of grey and blue. This work demonstrates the artist’s early style, being painted in 1910 when Kinross was experimenting with contemporary painting techniques and shows her influence by Monet in London.
