About Fields

The artwork titled “Fields” was created by Camille Pissarro in the year 1877. As a prominent piece within the Impressionism movement, it is painted with oil on canvas, depicting a landscape scene. Currently, the painting is housed in a private collection. The piece reflects the characteristic Impressionist interest in capturing the fleeting effects of light and atmosphere in the natural environment.

The composition of “Fields” presents a rural vista, rich with the colors of vegetation and the dynamics of natural light. Pissarro’s brushwork is loose and textured, enabling him to render the shimmering quality of the atmosphere and the vibrancy of the countryside. To the left, a dense clump of trees reaches vertically, contrasting with the horizontal expanse of the fields that recede into the background where a church steeple punctuates the skyline. The palette is dominated by greens, yellows, and blues, with dashes of red indicating flowers or roofs of distant buildings. The sky takes up a significant portion of the canvas, emphasizing the vastness of the scene and the transient cloud formations. The painting can be seen as a celebration of the rural landscape, capturing a sense of peace and natural beauty that invites contemplation.
