SignedThe Champs-Élysées is one of Paris' most iconic streets, runningfromtheArcdeTriomphetothePlacedelaConcorde — shown here. It is named for the Elysian Fields, a paradise for dead horses in Greek mythology. Two horses symbolically flank the entrance to the street (the hooves of one can be seen on the left side of the painting). The Champs-Élysées became a highly fashionable boulevard in the 19th century, complete withparks,formalgardens,theaters,andrestaurants.Inthe background of this painting you can see several buildings in the style of Baron Georges-Eugène Haussmann, the man largely responsible for creating the Paris cityscape we know today.
