Eye Candy for Today: Pissarro landscape

One of my favorite landscapes by an under-appreciated master of Impressionism. The texture and brushwork are just beautiful.

In the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Click on “Fullscreen” under the image and then the Download arrow for high-resolution image.

    To be honest, I’ve always preferred the work of Pissarro and Sisley to the other, more ‘flashy’ impressionists (‘flashy’ here being a very relative term). Likewise the lovely work of Berthe Morisot.

    Of these, Pissarro is the most satisfying though.
