About Autumn Morning

“Autumn Morning” is an oil on canvas artwork by Camille Pissarro, created in 1892. As a prime example of the Impressionist movement, the work measures 46 x 55 cm and depicts a landscape scene. The artwork belongs to the genre of landscape painting and is currently housed at the Von der Heydt Museum in Wuppertal, Germany.

The artwork presents a serene and atmospheric depiction of a countryside scene during autumn. Pissarro’s brushwork delivers a sense of the crisp morning air with a dappled effect, capturing the play of light and color unique to the season. The palette is a rich mixture of warm tones—reds, oranges, and yellows—that contrast with the cooler blues and greens, reflecting the natural change in foliage. The composition features trees in various stages of changing color, suggesting the transient beauty of autumn. There are also fields and a hint of human activity in the form of small figures and a cart characteristic of rural life. The sky, rendered with soft, textured strokes, echoes the gentle mood of the season. Through this artwork, Pissarro conveys the essence of the Impressionist movement, focusing on the visual experience of the landscape and the ephemeral qualities of light and color.
