This is Pissarro at the height of his classically Impressionist style. The painting is composed of individual dabs of intense color, intended to be blended optically when viewed from the proper distance.

  1. Thanks for the comment. Greta. I’m happy I’ve introduced you to Pissarro. Camille, in this case, is a man’s name in French. He was one of the original Impressionist circle, and along with Monet, probably the most ardent exponent of what we think of as classic “Impressionist” technique.

    Along with my introductory article on Camille Pissarro, you’ll find numerous other posts on Pissarro here on Lines and Colors.
