About Woman Sitting on the Floor

The artwork titled “Woman Sitting on the Floor” was created by the artist Camille Pissarro in 1890. This piece is a portrait rendered in pastel on paper, distinctly exemplifying the techniques of the Impressionist art movement. As of the last recorded information, the artwork is part of a private collection, indicating that it is not currently on public display.

The pastel artwork captures a woman seated on the floor in what appears to be an informal and relaxed pose. She is dressed in a long skirt with hues of blue and a blouse, her body language suggesting a moment of repose or contemplation. The woman gazes off to the side, not engaging with the viewer, adding a sense of introspection to the scene. Pissarro’s use of pastels provides a softness to the contours and textures, a characteristic of the Impressionist movement’s style. The background is minimally detailed, drawing the viewer’s attention predominantly to the figure. The strokes and colors are true to Impressionist principles, focusing on light and movement rather than precise realism. Pissarro’s signature and the date of the artwork are also visible, penned in a manner that harmonizes with the overall composition.
