About Landscape under Snow, Upper Norwood

The artwork entitled “Landscape under Snow, Upper Norwood” was created by Camille Pissarro in 1871. This oil on cardboard piece is exemplary of the Impressionist movement, to which Pissarro contributed significantly. As a landscape genre painting, it resides within a private collection. The usage of light, color, and brushwork techniques are indicative of the Impressionist style, aiming to capture the essence and atmosphere of the scene.

In the artwork, one observes a serene winter landscape, where snow blanketed fields stretch across the foreground, meeting a crisp horizon. Bare trees punctuate the scene, their delicate branches etched against the subdued winter sky. The artist has employed a palette of soft whites and blues to convey the chill of the snow-covered vista, while hints of warmer tones in the architecture suggest human presence amidst the cold. The brushwork is loose and dynamic, characteristic of Impressionism, allowing the viewer to sense the fleeting quality of light and weather. Delicate shadows cast over the snow hint at the low winter sun, contributing to the overall tranquility and natural beauty captured by Pissarro.
