As a key figure in the Impressionist movement, Pissarro’s style is evident in the composition and brushwork of this landscape.

The artwork captures a rural landscape bathed in the warm, earthy hues of autumn. Dominated by a large tree with its leaves turning orange and brown, signs of the season are unmistakable. Beneath the tree, the lush green grass still holds the energy of summer, creating a striking contrast with the autumnal canopy. The background features a row of houses with classic architectural forms, and their appearance behind the foliage lends depth to the scene. Pissarro’s technique, with its loose brushstrokes and blended colors, creates a sense of vibrancy and movement in the leaves, as if a gentle autumn breeze were passing through. The vastness of the sky, rendered in a muted palette, allows the eye to focus on the rich textures and colors of the vegetation. Overall, the artwork exudes the serene atmosphere characteristic of Pissarro’s impressionist landscapes, inviting contemplation of the seasonal transition and the beauty of the rural French countryside.
