About Study at Pontoise

The artwork “Study at Pontoise” is an oil on canvas painting by Camille Pissarro, dating to circa 1878. The piece measures 55.88 x 46.3 cm and belongs to the Impressionist movement. As a landscape genre, this work is currently held in a private collection.

The painting portrays a bucolic scene with a strong emphasis on the lush foliage and the play of light across its leaves. Dominated by an organic palette, the landscape is depicted with the quick, loose brushstrokes typical of Impressionism, capturing the fleeting effects of light and atmosphere. The roofs of houses, accented with bright red chimneys, peek through the verdant growth, lending a touch of human presence to the otherwise natural setting. The artwork captures a moment of everyday beauty as seen through the eyes of Pissarro, while also showcasing the hallmarks of the Impressionist style—an emphasis on light, color, and the artist’s immediate impression of the scene.
