About Apple Trees and Poplars in the Setting Sun

The artwork titled “Apple Trees and Poplars in the Setting Sun” was created by artist Camille Pissarro in 1901. It is an oil on canvas piece that measures 81 x 65 cm. The painting is a fine example of the Impressionist movement and falls under the landscape genre. Presently, it is housed at the Musée Malraux (MuMa) in Le Havre, France.

In the artwork, one can observe a serene rural scene bathed in the soft, diffused light of a setting sun. The canvas is dominated by the lush greenery of the apple trees and poplars, which are rendered in loose yet deliberate brushstrokes characteristic of the Impressionist style. Subtle shifts in color suggest the gentle passage of light across the natural setting. In the foreground, a small group of figures can be seen, perhaps enjoying the tranquility of the evening. Their presence adds a sense of scale and life to the landscape. The sky, painted with a blend of warm and cool tones, elicits the fleeting moments of twilight and reflects the Impressionists’ fascination with the changing qualities of light.
