Camille Pissarro

Hay Harvest at Éragny

1901
In 1884, Pissarro and his family moved from his home near Pontoise to Éragny on the River Epte, near Gisors. This was to be his principal place of residence until his death in 1903 and an ideal setting for his paintings of rural labour and the harvest. Pissarro's careful arrangement of figures into repeated poses creates a balanced rhythm of line and form across the canvas.
