Osvaldo PINHEIRO was born in Brazil in 1890.
His career was short, he died in 1923 at the age of 33 in France.
Some of his paintings are kept at the Pinacoteca of São Paulo.
The artist perfected his career in France, notably in Paris, at the Académie Julian.
The night lights of the capital were his favorite subject.
From the opera house to the Place Saint-Michel, from the Café de la Paix to the Place de la Bourse, the pictorial effects rendered by the electric light are king.
Pinheiro paints the ground surfaces with little paint, as if he were painting with watercolors.
His painting, however, becomes richer in matter when we approach the street lamps. This can be seen in our painting.
The bulbs are represented by a large deposit of yellow and white paint, then surrounded by a halo and small strokes. This same technique is used for the headlights of cars.
The painter is trying to capture the light of the 1900s.
