About The Fields of Eragny, the Apple Tree

The artwork titled “The Fields of Eragny, the Apple Tree” was created by Camille Pissarro in 1894. It is an oil painting on canvas and measures 27.3 x 35.6 cm. Reflecting the principles of Impressionism, this landscape genre painting is part of a private collection. Considering the era and movement it belongs to, the artwork is expected to depict the transient effects of light and color.

The artwork showcases a vivid, naturalistic scene imbued with the distinctive brushwork and light capturing qualities of Impressionism. In the foreground stands an apple tree, its twisting branches and foliage rendered with brisk dabs and strokes of paint, suggesting the energy and life inherent in the living subject. The background features a layered tapestry of green fields that stretch toward a row of dark, dense trees. Above, the dynamic, cloud-filled sky is executed with an array of pastel hues, indicating a lively atmosphere and the fleeting nature of light. The painting’s overall effect is one of immediacy and the sensory immersion in the rural setting, characteristic of Pissarro’s works.
