About A Field in Varengeville

The artwork titled “A Field in Varengeville” was created by the esteemed artist Camille Pissarro in the year 1899. Executed in oil on canvas, it is a quintessential example of the Impressionism movement. Pissarro’s landscape genre painting currently resides within a private collection, reflecting the artist’s renowned ability to capture the ephemeral qualities of light and atmosphere.

The artwork presents a bucolic scene distinguished by its vibrant brushwork and luminous palette, characteristic of Impressionist technique. A pastoral landscape is depicted with a sense of immediacy and movement, imparting the serene yet transient essence of the countryside. The foreground shows lush and textured grass, dotted with the dappled sunlight filtering through the leaves of the prominently featured trees. The middle ground is anchored by a thatched cottage, its rustic charm is emblematic of rural life. The delicate shades of green, yellow, and brown in the foliage and the soft blues and whites in the sky convey the interactions of natural light and shadow. Pissarro’s sensitive treatment of the terrain and the architecture, alongside the grazing cow, encapsulates the harmonious relationship between nature and agrarian living. This work, through its composition and painterly qualities, allows viewers to envisage the tranquil and harmonious environment of Varengeville at the turn of the 20th century.
