About Haystacks

The artwork “Haystacks” was created by artist Camille Pissarro in 1889. This watercolor on paper piece is a representative work of the Impressionism movement, measuring 22.4 x 28.2 centimeters. Characterized as a landscape genre, the painting is currently part of a private collection.

In the artwork “Haystacks,” Pissarro depicts a rural landscape dominated by a large haystack in the foreground, giving the work its title. The brushwork is loose and free, typical of Impressionist technique, where the play of light and color is more important than detailed representation. The background features pastoral elements such as smaller structures, possibly farm houses or barns, along with foliage and trees, all bathed in a naturalistic light. The sky above is vast, yet its treatment suggests a fleeting moment captured with swift, expressive touches. The overall impression is one of rural tranquility and the beauty of the everyday countryside.
