Camille Pissarro's Boulevard Montmartre au printemps (1897)
"And really, the reason we think of death in celestial terms is that the visible firmament, especially at night (above our blacked-out Paris with the gaunt arches of its Boulevard Exelmans and the ceaseless Alpine gurgle of desolate latrines), is the most adequate and ever-present symbol of that vast silent explosion."
Vladimir Nabokov That in Aleppo Once... (1943)
