Thence by descent to the present owners
This beautiful sketch by Camille Pissarro, a highly-finished pastel composition over one of his monochrome etchings, depicts a woman in her vegetable garden, a motif that the artist revisited throughout his career. Of the core proponents of the Impressionist group, it was Edgar Degas, Mary Cassatt and Pissarro who were most enamoured with the processes of printmaking. Enjoying the shared space between fine art and the art market that printmaking offered, they elevated the basic concept of replicating an image for commercial reasons, emphasising handicraft through idiosyncratic and often complicated techniques. The size and intricate detail of their prints also chimed with their shared preference for intimate exhibitions and works.
