About Hampton Court Green

The artwork titled “Hampton Court Green” was created by Camille Pissarro in 1891. As an oil on canvas painting, it measures 54.3 x 73 cm and belongs to the Impressionist movement. Characterized as a landscape, this painting is housed at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC, United States.

The artwork captures an idyllic and bucolic scene of leisure and nature. It depicts a group of figures that are in the middle of a verdant expanse, which could be construed as a cricket match or a similar pastime, given their white attire and the open field they occupy. The buildings in the background, rendered with a soft clarity, are characteristic of the period, exhibiting architecture that blends harmoniously with the surrounding environment. The palette is dominated by tranquil tones, with verdant greens of the trees standing in contrast to the warmer hues of the foreground, while the sky is depicted with gentle purples and blues, suggesting perhaps an early evening or a cloudy day. The brushwork is loose and expressive, typical of Impressionist art, which aims to capture the essence of the scene and the transient effects of light and color rather than detailed realism.
