Description

While most of the Impressionists preferred to paint the bustling boulevards of Paris and fashionable weekends resorts, Camille Pissarro in the 1880s began to focus his attention on the day-to-day life of French farmers. By the time he painted this seated woman, he had changed his style from the spontaneous naturalism of the Impressionists to the more obviously “artificial” approach of Pointillism. Pointillism was based on scientific color theories and the systematic application of uniform marks of color side by side.
