About Haystack Eragny

The artwork “Haystack Eragny” was created by Camille Pissarro in 1885. It is an oil painting on canvas that belongs to the Pointillism and Neo-Impressionism art movements. This landscape painting is categorized under the genre of landscape art and as of the last available information is held in a private collection.

The painting depicts a rural scene with a large haystack dominating the foreground. The haystack is well rounded and appears to be carefully constructed with a textured surface that captures the light variably, suggesting the meticulous application of the pointillist technique, where small, distinct dots of color are applied in patterns to form an image. The background features a flat expanse that stretches towards the horizon under a wide, softly swirling sky, suggesting movement or the passage of time. The color palette is mostly composed of warm earth tones with impressionistic touches of blues, purples, and yellows applied to portray the natural variations of light and shadow over the landscape. A figure can be seen in the midst of the field, adding a human element to the pastoral scene. The brushwork and the play of light and color give the painting a vibrant yet tranquil quality, characteristic of Pissarro’s later works where he experimented with Pointillist techniques.
