Gallery Mondays: Burnett’s Paris Scene

burnett

I was at my friend’s house the other day when I noticed her parents have a Burnett painting on the wall over the staircase. It’s an oil on canvas painting of a Paris scene with the Panthéon in the backdrop.

After much research, I discovered that there are tons of Burnett paintings of Paris scenes similar to this one, some with the Eiffel Tower in the backdrop and others with a market in the background and so on.

What I like most about this painting is the way the people look like they’re walking in slow motion around the scene, as do most depictions of people appear in impressionist paintings such as this one. It almost creates a GIF in my brain if I stair at it for two long.
