“Portrayals of local peasant life capture the rural charm of Pontoise, where Pissarro lived from 1866 until 1883. This location allowed Pissarro to separate himself from the influence of his predecessors, the established French landscape painters, and to depict an environment previously scarcely recorded by other masters.”
