  • In this image, a nursemaid and her charges sit in the dappled sunlight of the gardens bordering the Champs-Élysées, watching the passing parade of carriages and pedestrians along Paris’s most famous thoroughfare.
  • Neo-Impressionist prints are quite rare, and Cross produced only two in his career. Here he applied a stippled technique and contrasted cool blues and greens with the sunlit zones of the landscape.
  • Both of Cross’s prints exhibited here were commissioned for portfolios of original prints by leading contemporary artists. On the Champs-Élysées was published in Berlin by the art review Pan for its large international readership.
