Montmartre, Ramon Casas, 1890-1891. Oil on canvas, 64x45 cm.

During the winter of 1890-1891, Ramon Casas Carbó (Barcelona, ​​1866-1932) went with Santiago Rusiñol to live at Moulin de la Galette area, at the top end of Montmartre. The intense cold forced Casas to paint from the confines of his home, as he explained in a letter to his sister. The atmosphere and the environment in which they lived provided the scenes and motifs for his paintings. Apart from several scenes painted of inside the ballroom of the Moulin, Casas painted this perspective  from a high point, probably from a window in his Paris home.
