The artwork depicts a rural landscape suffused with the light and color characteristic of Impressionism. The composition presents a serene vista of the village of √Čragny, where Pissarro lived in his later years. It captures a gently rolling countryside dotted with small buildings, including homes with reddish roofs that recede into the hills, and the pointed spire of what appears to be a church piercing the skyline. In the foreground, verdant fields and smudges of foliage anchor the viewer’s gaze, while the reflection of the sky and the architecture in the water suggests a river or stream. The visible brushstrokes and the juxtaposition of color are hallmarks of Pissarro’s style, which seeks to convey the ephemeral quality of light and atmosphere, rather than a meticulous depiction of reality.
