This present charming little painting is one of the rare views from Paris by Hayet.

Exceptionally strong is the beautiful color.

LOUIS HAYET was a french Post-Impressionist painter and pointillist, born in Pontoise August 29, 1864 and died in Cormeilles-Parisis, near Pontoise, 27 December 1940.

His predisposition for painting appear when twelve years. Childhood friend of Lucien Pissarro, Hayet has the opportunity to show his work to Pissarro in 1883. With Pissarro, father and son Lucien, as well as with Seurat, he maintained a closer friendship.

In early May 1886, Lucien Pissarro and Hayet visit the workshop to see Seurat "An afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte". The visit, one or two weeks before the eighth and last Impressionist exhibition, was decisive.

His works are showing a sense of abstraction and closer to the evolution of Van Gogh. (Chrisophe Duvivier, Director of the Museum at Pontoise)

After the disappearance of Seurat Louis Hayet participates between 1894 and 1897 eight exhibitions at Le Barc de Boutteville.

Hayet spend the rest of his career in scientific research on the pigment or color without ceasing to paint.
