Eugène Jansson, Hornsgatan by Night, 1902
Oil on canvas

Eugène Jansson was a landscape artist who painted city views. He is most famous for his nocturnal views in deep-blue shades, where the streetlights blend with other elements of the urban scene. In Hornsgatan at Night, the gaslights create swirls and waves along the empty Stockholm street. In Sunrise over the Rooftops morning has come, and the sun has just risen above the horizon to cast its light on the snow-covered rooftops. Some of the chimneys are smoking. In the sky the chilly morning air appears to have frozen into thin, connected shards of ice that diffuse the light like prisms.
