About Eragny Landscape

The artwork titled “Eragny Landscape” is a creation of the artist Camille Pissarro, dated approximately to the year 1886. This piece is executed in watercolor on paper, embodying the techniques of Pointillism and Neo-Impressionism, movements noted for their innovative approach to light and color. The genre of this work is landscape, and it currently resides in the collection of the Morgan Library and Museum in New York City, New York, United States.

The artwork presents a serene, pastoral scene depicted through an array of small, distinct dots of color—a hallmark of Pointillism. The composition is dominated by the gentle representation of trees with their foliage conveyed through warm hues of orange, yellow, and green. The trees are set against a background featuring a soft, dappled sky, realizing the play of light and atmosphere that Pointillism aims to capture. In the middle ground, one discerns subtle hints of habitation, possibly farm buildings, which blend harmoniously with the natural surroundings. The foreground is imbued with a sunlit character, suggested by the lighter tones and energetic brushwork. The artistry of Pissarro is evidenced in the delicate balance of color and light, producing a tranquil and immersive countryside tableau.
