He who knows how to appreciate colour relationships, the influence of one colour on another, their contrasts and dissonances, is promised an infinitely diverse imagery.

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.
