About Portrait of Jeanne

The artwork entitled “Portrait of Jeanne” was crafted by the renowned artist Camille Pissarro around the year 1896. As an exquisite example of the Impressionist movement, the piece was created using oil on canvas and measures approximately 65 by 54 centimeters. This portrait is a genre painting that encapsulates the impressionist style, characterized by its vibrant brushwork and attention to light and atmosphere. Currently, the artwork is housed within the Rau pour le Tiers Monde Foundation in Zürich, Switzerland.

In the artwork, the figure of Jeanne is rendered with a sensitive touch, capturing a thoughtful expression on her face. The use of brushstrokes to illustrate both the texture of her attire and the subtlety of her skin tone typifies Pissarro’s masterful impressionist techniques. Her gaze is cast slightly to the side, away from the viewer, engendering a contemplative mood. The subject is dressed in a dark garment, accentuated by a colorful arrangement of flowers that provide a small yet significant splash of color to the composition. The background, painted in a lighter hue, brings Jeanne to the forefront, allowing her presence to dominate the canvas. Pissarro’s talent for portraiture is evident in the life-like rendering of Jeanne’s features, imbuing the artwork with a tangible sense of individuality and character.
