Pontoise, The Road To Gisors In Winter, 1873
|Artist||Pissarro, Jacob Camille||Winter scenes always held a special fascination for the Impressionists, since they presented familiar object in new shapes and colours. The technique of small brush strokes, moreover, seemed particularly suited to rendering snow and the multitude of reflections. Sisley, Monet, and Pissarro therefore painted numerous snow scenes, even though it meant working outdoors in bitter cold. In this painting, Pissarro has caught both the calmness and the animation of a provincial town in midwinter.
