Henry Bloch once visited the spot in Paris where Camille Pissarro painted the Rue Saint-Honoré in 1898. He was accompanied by the artist’s great grandson, Joachim Pissarro.

“It looks the same way,” Bloch said, “but you don’t see the carriages.”

The painting, “Rue Saint-Honoré, Sun Effect, Afternoon,” once belonged to actor Edward G. Robinson.
