About Little Goose Girl

The artwork titled “Little Goose Girl” is a creation by the artist Camille Pissarro from the year 1886. This piece is an exemplar of the Impressionism art movement and is categorized as a portrait. Currently, it is housed in a private collection. The painting depicts a young girl in a pastoral setting tending to a flock of geese. The brushwork is loose and vibrant, typical of Impressionist techniques, capturing the essence of the moment and the play of natural light.

In the scene, the girl appears to stand in an open field, with a gentle slope of a hill behind her. The grass is rendered with a harmonious patchwork of greens, yellows, and blues, suggesting the shimmering effect of sunlight filtering through the leaves of the trees in the background. The geese in the foreground—white with accents of orange and black—are animated and seem to be following the girl’s guidance. Despite the figurative subject, the details allow the viewer to feel the movement and tranquility of the countryside atmosphere.
