About Portrait of Jeanne

The artwork “Portrait of Jeanne” by Camille Pissarro is an oil on canvas painting that belongs to the Pointillism and Neo-Impressionism art movements. Measuring 38.4 x 46.4 cm, this portrait genre piece is housed in the Israel Museum in Jerusalem, Israel.

The painting features a young female figure seated and inclined slightly to her right, giving the impression of a thoughtful or introspective pose. The subject, Jeanne, appears to be dressed in a vibrant yellow blouse with a white skirt or apron, her dark hair combed down around her shoulders. Pissarro has employed a rich palette of colors that interact with each other through his use of small, distinct dots of color—a technique characteristic of the Pointillist method. The background consists of a mingling of various colors that blend into a tapestry of visual impressions, providing a harmonious contrast to the solid tones used on the figure. The artist’s application of color and his attention to light and shadow suggest the interior setting and ambience surrounding Jeanne. Pissarro’s signature can be discreetly seen in the lower right corner of the canvas. The artwork captures a moment of everyday life, typical of Pissarro’s oeuvre, with a focus on the human element within the context of Neo-Impressionist style.
