About Ile Lacruix, Rouen. Effect of Fog.

The artwork entitled “Ile Lacruix, Rouen. Effect of Fog” is a cityscape painted by Camille Pissarro in 1888. It is executed in oil on canvas, measuring 44 by 55 centimeters. The painting represents the styles of Pointillism and Neo-Impressionism. Presently, this piece of art is held in a private collection.

The artwork captures a misty, atmospheric scene at the Ile Lacroix in Rouen. The viewer is presented with a subdued palette that conveys the essence of fog blanketing the area. Soft touches of color suggest the reflections of light on the water’s surface and the diffuse shapes of trees, buildings, and boats. Pissarro’s technique encapsulates the fleeting effects of light and weather upon the landscape, a hallmark of Impressionist art. The subtle gradations of tone and the application of small, distinct points of color blend together from a distance, creating an image that is both evocative and serene. This painting is an exemplary illustration of how Neo-Impressionist artists endeavored to capture the interplay of light and color through meticulous and scientific approaches to painting.
