From a high viewpoint we look down on a wet and wintry Place de Clichy in Paris. Camoin has reduced the foreground monument and the surrounding buildings to strong dark and simplified shapes which he sets off against the lightening sky. Human activity is suggested in tiny, quick, slashes of black. A brilliant draughtsman, Camoin captures the gestures and mood of the hurrying figures with their bowed heads and shoulders.
