Details     Description
   
Artist Pissarro, Jacob Camille In 1884 Pissarro had settled in the small village of Erangy-sur-Epte, but after some twelve years he grew tired of the all too familiar landscape and began to travel. When increasing eye trouble prevented him from working outdoors, he began to spend winters in Paris. There he successively occupied apartments with different views of the city and, from behind his windows, painted the perspectives of streets and animated crowds. Each new vista became a challenge, and he set out to explore it with enthusiasm as well as with astonishing youthfulness. The paintings of his last years reveal a mastery and an optimism that only the very great attain toward the end of their lives.
