At the Carnegie Museum of Art in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania they had several nice oil paintings by Camille Pissarro. This first one is called “The Great Bridge, Rouen (Le grand pont, Rouen)“1896,  Danish born, 1830-1903. Camille Pissarro was an Impressionist that painted this industrial scene with it being one of 47 paintings he did in Rouen. He shows the newly built 1885 bridge with its flowing traffic, billowing smoke from the smokestacks and laborers on the riverbank.  He openly lamented the blight of development and big industry.
