Camille Pissarro, French, 1830 - 1903
Oil on canvas
1961-150-1Gift of Mrs. William I. Mirkil, 1961
LabelInfluenced by the Pointillist work of Georges Seurat, Pissarro originally painted this landscape entirely in small dots of color and dated it 87 in the lower right corner. The work remained in Pissarro's studio where, several years later, the upper left of the canvas was torn. The artist repaired the work and added a second date of 1902. Because Pissarro had by then abandoned the Pointillist style, the repainted area of the painting—the sky—exhibits the looser, more Impressionistic style of his later years.
