Pissarro’s painting is characterized by the loose brushwork and play of light that typified the Impressionist style, where the focus lies more on the overall impression and the conveyance of the atmosphere rather than minute details. The horse represents a calm focal point within the composition, surrounded by a tapestry of trees in various states of autumnal transition. The background is composed of rolling hills dotted with quaint houses, suggesting a village ambiance. The sky above is rendered in soft hues, contributing to the tranquil mood of the painting. As typical of Pissarro’s work, the natural setting and the way life harmonizes within it are beautifully depicted, allowing viewers an intimate glimpse into the rural life of the time.
