Option b The rebuilding of the center of Paris under Napoloeon III

Beginning in 1851, the government of Napoleon III transformed the old streets of Paris into a new system of grand boulevards. 

This painting abounds with evidence of the city’s rebuilding.

 Gustave Caillebotte selected a complex intersection near the Saint-Lazare train station for his subject, distorting the size of the buildings and the distance between them to create a wide-angle view that reflects the sweeping modernity of this capital city.
