About The Tuileries Gardens, Afternoon, Sun

The artwork titled “The Tuileries Gardens, Afternoon, Sun” was created by the artist Camille Pissarro in the year 1900. It is an oil on canvas piece that exemplifies the Impressionist movement, which Pissarro was a notable member of. The painting has dimensions of 73 by 92 centimeters, and it falls under the cityscape genre. This artwork is housed in the Israel Museum in Jerusalem, Israel.

The artwork captures a vivid and atmospheric scene of the Tuileries Gardens in Paris, bathed in soft afternoon sunlight. Pissarro’s masterful use of light and color depicts the gardens in a series of quick, visible brushstrokes—a hallmark of the Impressionist technique. The light appears to dance across the scene, reflecting off the water of the circular fountain in the foreground and the various figures strolling or resting throughout the park. The composition showcases a broad view of the garden, presenting a sweeping vista that leads the viewer’s eye from the detailed trees and figures in the foreground to the architectural skyline in the background. The skyline is punctuated by the existence of historical structures, rendered hazily, perhaps to convey the transient nature of light and the fleeting moments of everyday life. The lush greenery of the garden contrasts with the urban backdrop, yet the city life is harmoniously integrated with the tranquil park setting.
