Catalogue Note

During his tenure in Paris from 1886-89, Childe Hassam dedicated his time to documenting the daily life of Parisians, particularly flower sellers and shopkeepers. The bright wares of these women afforded Hassam the opportunity to incorporate bright color accents in otherwise subdued compositions. In Sannois, the dots of vermillion and peach draw the eye to the bounty in the baskets the women are carrying to market. The pale orange hues in the sky and light reflecting off one facet of the spire indicate early morning as the figures begin the work of the day.

Sannois, is a small suburb 15 km northwest of the heart of Paris.
