Vuillard sought assistance from master printer Auguste Clot to tackle the technical difficulty of using many colors in a single print.


In this small view of a Parisian avenue, city dwellers of various classes coexist, as a fashionably dressed woman is about to cross paths with a man carrying a heavy burden on his shoulders. The city street provides a microcosm of the capital.
