Description

A part of Clement Haupers series, Paris after 10 pm, this nocturne scene of a lone tree growing out of a brick covered incline is devoid of any color other than black, white, and gradients of grey. To the left of the tree, stairs lead up to a street where three dark silhouettes lean on a railing. Behind them is a small building with circular lights running along the edge of the roof and a sign reading 'La Petite Chaumiere' above the door.
