Between 1904 and 1916 Isaac Israels resided in Paris, where he kept his workshop until 1925. A recurring theme were cityscapes, in which he captured the life of the modern city. This watercolor depicts the Rue Mouffetard (situated in the fifth arrondissement), a street that was famous for the food markets that were held daily.
