Caillebotte's work in pastel is as significant as it is rare, as he only created roughly twenty compositions with this medium during the years of 1873-1880. In Canotier sur l’Yerres, which was completed at the height of the artist's involvement with the Impressionist group, Caillebotte layers rich green and blue pastels the lush foliage of the surrounding riverbank and its reflection on the water. The composition is viewed from a vantage upon the boat, helmed by the sleeping oarsman.
