It’s a little quiet out there on Pissarro’s Boulevard Montmartre

Considering how everything is shutting down in various parts of the world as we all struggle to contain the coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19), it made sense to wonder how a pair of art history masterpieces might look in today’s world.

Camille Pissaro painted “The Boulevard Montmartre on a Winter Morning” in 1897, but maybe it might look like this today?

Likewise, Vincent Van Gogh painted “Café Terrace at Night” in 1888, but perhaps this location in Arles might look like this now?

Let’s hope we can get through this and back to normal sooner rather than later … we hope everyone is staying safe and healthy!
