About The Pont Corneille, Rouen, Grey Weather

“The Pont Corneille, Rouen, Grey Weather” is an oil on canvas painting by the Impressionist artist Camille Pissarro, created in 1896. This cityscape measures 61.1 x 91.5 cm and is currently housed at the National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa, Canada. The piece represents the Impressionist movement, known for capturing the transient effects of light and atmosphere.

In the painting, you can observe a view of the Pont Corneille bridge over the Seine River in Rouen, France. The atmosphere is depicted with a palette of muted colors, implying overcast or grey weather. The brushstrokes give a sense of movement and change, characteristic of the Impressionist style. The river reflects the grey skies above and the architecture that lines its banks, while small figures are scattered throughout the scene, and a boat with billowing smoke adds life and activity to the composition. The overall effect is one that conveys the mood and ambiance of a cloudy day in Rouen, capturing a moment in time with Pissarro’s distinctive techniques.
