About The Louvre, March Mist

“The Louvre, March Mist” is an artwork by Camille Pissarro, painted in 1903. This oil on canvas measures 54 x 65 cm and is categorized as a cityscape, exemplifying the Impressionism movement. Currently, the artwork is housed at the Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek in Copenhagen, Denmark.

The artwork presents a view of the Louvre Museum in Paris, enveloped in the soft, diffused light of a misty March day. The quintessential Impressionist technique is evident in the loose brushstrokes and the interplay of light and color. Through a hazy atmosphere, Pissarro captures the bustling activity along the Seine River with figures strolling near the embankment and boats navigating the water. The trees on the left, bereft of leaves, suggest the season before the full bloom of spring, while the pale and mellow tones convey a sense of the transient weather. The hazy silhouette of the Louvre and the Pont Neuf bridge provide a sense of depth and scale, rooting the scene in its urban context amidst the transient conditions of weather and light.
