Catalogue Note

'Pissarro was particularly fascinated by the transitions between the seasons and the times of day, and his palette included endless pastel shades reminiscent of the iridescent hues of a piece of mother-of-pearl’ (Christoph Becker, “Camille Pissarro, Impressionist Artist”, Camille Pissarro, Stuttgart, 1999, p.110).
