About Pear Trees in Bloom at Eragny, Morning

The artwork entitled “Pear Trees in Bloom at Eragny, Morning” is an oil on canvas painting by the artist Camille Pissarro, completed in the year 1886. Measuring 54 x 65.1 cm, this piece is ascribed to the Neo-Impressionism movement and depicts a landscape genre. It is currently part of a private collection.

The artwork presents a serene rural setting, characterized by the blossoming pear trees at Eragny during the fresh brightness of morning. Pissarro’s use of stippled brushstrokes—a hallmark of the Neo-Impressionist technique—creates a vibrant, textured surface that lends the painting a shimmering, luminous quality. The gentle play of light and colorful dabs of paint capture the essence of spring, with greenery and blooming flowers conveying a sense of renewal.

The composition is balanced and peaceful, inviting the viewer to appreciate the tranquility of the countryside. A fenced meadow in the foreground leads the eye towards a cluster of trees, among which the pear trees in full bloom stand out thanks to their lighter tones. Pissarro’s focus on the cycles of nature and rural life speaks to his interest in the harmonious rhythms of the landscape, which is rendered with a sensitivity to the changing atmosphere and light of the passing day. The sky above, a canopy of blue speckled with soft clouds, echoes the freshness of the scene below and completes this picturesque moment frozen in time by Pissarro’s masterful hand.
