Nocturns were a popular subject for the Impressionists, who regaled  in the challenge of painting different effects of light.

Brangwyn wrote enthusiastically of Belleroches ability to paint reflected surfaces - and claimed that Degas admired Belleroche in this capacity:

"....with the glimmer of light ...., the shadows full of rich and reflected tones - Belleroche bought a new note into this kind of painting.....giving immediacy to his effects of light and colour, crystallizing the emotion of a particular moment.  In this work one feels that, with his lively and nervous handling of paint, he makes the objects before him live in the moving light that plays on them, and it is not surprising that Degas though so highly of these works." Frank Brangwyn, Foreword to Albert de Belleroche by Julian A Millest, Apollo, 1935, XXI 124 April
