About Field at Eragny

The artwork “Field at Eragny” by Camille Pissarro is an oil on canvas creation dated 1885, exemplifying the Impressionist movement. Its dimensions are 32.5 x 45.8 cm and it depicts a landscape genre, currently housed in a private collection.

In this pastoral scene, the artwork captures the essence of the countryside with a radiant palette and loose brushwork characteristic of Impressionism. A central tree with a twist of autumnal hues anchors the composition, set against a gently sloping field speckled with the lively greens of new growth. In the background, a harmonic blend of buildings nestles within the natural surroundings, their structural forms softened under Pissarro’s touch. Above, a lively sky dances with a myriad of blues and whites, suggesting a crispness in the air and the transient nature of light. This serene portrayal of rural life is imbued with a sense of tranquility and the ever-changing qualities of the natural world, hallmarks of Pissarro’s work and the overarching aims of the Impressionist movement.
