Apple Tree in the Meadow, Eragny

Camille Pissarro (French, 1830–1903)
The fields and gardens around Pissarro’s home in Éragny, a small village on the river Epte about ninety miles northwest of Paris, were the subject of his work for more than twenty years. This view of the meadow adjacent to Pissarro’s house (the brick building visible on the left) is marked by the vibrant colors and strongly-patterned brush and palette knife work common in the artist’s paintings of the 1890s. Pissarro was fond of setting up his easel in various places around the village and working outdoors.
