In “Poultry Market at Gisors,” Pissarro articulates the effervescent atmosphere of a local market through his adept use of color and light. The scene is imbued with a sense of immediacy and liveliness, as the artist masterfully depicts the intermingling of vendors and townsfolk. Central to the composition are figures clad in attire characteristic of the late 19th century, engaged in the commerce and conversation typical of such a setting. This cacophony of activity is set against a backdrop of trees and the architectural features of the town, lending it a sense of place and authenticity. The Impressionist style is evident in the loose brushwork, the play of natural light, and the emphasis on capturing the transient effects of the moment, which Pissarro and his contemporaries so passionately sought to represent.
