    Like Ando Hiroshige, Bonnard captured the animated life of the city in casual scenes of crowded boulevards, bridges, and back streets. Often employing an elevated bird's-eye view that scattered silhouetted figures across the surface of a picture, both artists were ever on the lookout for the anecdotal and picturesque in the urban scheme.
