Catalogue Note

In their catalogue raisonné, Joachim Pissarro and Claire Durand-Ruel Snollaerts state that "the narrow, vertical format of this painting, emphasised by the vertical lines of the trees, is found again in other early paintings and drawings by Pissarro. Sous-Bois, or under-growth views of this kind, were a favorite subject of the mid-nineteenth-century Barbizon School artists [whose preferred locations] Pissarro frequented soon after his arrival in Paris in 1855. Ludovic-Rodo Pissarro knew of this painting, which is mentioned in the documents for the supplement to the catalogue raisonné of his father's work" (Joachim Pissarro & Claire Durand-Ruel Snollaerts, op. cit., p. 63).
