“The Fishmarket, Dieppe 2” is an artwork by the Impressionist artist Camille Pissarro, created in 1902. It is an oil painting on canvas with dimensions of 66 x 81 cm and is classified as a cityscape. The artwork exemplifies the Impressionist movement’s focus on capturing the ephemeral aspects of light and color. It is currently held in the collection of the Cleveland Museum of Art (CMA) in Cleveland, Ohio, United States.

The artwork portrays a bustling fish market in Dieppe, with a vibrant sense of activity and movement. Pissarro’s brushwork is characteristically loose and energetic, creating a vivid representation of the scene with an emphasis on the effects of light and atmosphere. The buildings are painted in warm tones, standing out against the softer hues of the sky. The composition is filled with figures of vendors and shoppers mingling around the central structure, where the market is presumably taking place. Despite the apparent chaos, Pissarro’s deft handling of color and form brings a sense of cohesion and harmony to the scene, inviting viewers to immerse themselves in the lively marketplace atmosphere.
