About Autumn Landscape, near Pontoise

The artwork titled “Autumn Landscape, near Pontoise” is an oil on canvas painting by the artist Camille Pissarro. It dates roughly between 1871 and 1872 and is considered a work of the Impressionist movement. The dimensions of the piece are 50.48 x 55.5 cm, and it falls under the genre of landscape painting. Currently, this artwork is part of a private collection.

The painting depicts a pastoral scene flush with the warm hues of autumn. A figure stands in the foreground, diminutive against the grandeur of the towering trees whose leaves have turned an array of oranges, yellows, and reds. The composition conveys a sense of tranquility, with the gentle overcast sky contrasting with the vibrant foliage. A fence runs partially across the scene, leading the viewer’s eye to a small white house nestled amidst the trees in the distance. The perception of light and air, hallmarks of the Impressionist style, are palpable in the loose brushwork and the manner in which the scenery seems to dissolve into the atmospheric conditions of the season. Pissarro’s signature is visible on the lower right, confirming the authenticity of the piece. This work is a testament to the artist’s dedication to capturing the essence of the French countryside and the changing seasons through the prism of Impressionist technique.
