This small painting of the bustling banks of the Seine is not only a charming view of Paris but a scarce example of Tanner's painting en plein air in Paris. The dome in this painting apperars to be a view of Les Invalides, of which Tanner made a larger oil painting in 1896, now in the Terra Foundation collection, Chicago.
