The road from Versailles to Louveciennes is Camille Pissarro. 100x81
Pissarro's style was finally formed in the late sixties. At first he approaches them geographically, since settles in Luvesien near Bougivalwhere Monet, Sisley and Renoir are working at this time. It is under the influence of paintings by Monet Pissarro that completely changes the style and methods of work. Until now, he worked mainly in the workshop, but, since 1869, he writes in the open air, and in a much smaller format. Pictures are created faster and are somewhat fluent in the picture. Their texture changes, strokes become thinner and intermittent, the palette becomes brighter. Pissarro imitates the Monet technique, which imposes paints with light brush touches, individual colored strokes.
The road from Versailles to Louveciennes that transitional period in Pissarro's work most clearly represents, because it combines the features characteristic of his early work with elements of a new manner. The theme of the picture bears such a mixed character: on the one hand, a portrait, and on the other, a genre scene. Perhaps this is reflected in the admiration of Women in Monet's garden. The size of the canvas significantly exceeds the format of future impressionistic paintings by Pissarro. The composition of the picture is geometric, the picture is as if divided into two separate parts. The left part, executed in dark colors, carries a memory of the early period of Pissarro's work. The right side, thanks to color transparency, light texture and fine nuances, is filled with an atmosphere of light, typical of impressionism.
