Catalogue Note

“But the major characteristic of 1880 was the growing concern about involving the human figure in landscape painting […]. Rather than a landscape with figures, these are figures in a landscape. They are completely absorbed by the overall vision of light and shadow. They are not part of a genre scene at all: they are the nobleness and grandeur of nature itself.”
Ludovic Pissarro
