Lucien Pissarro was the son of the noted French Impressionist Camille Pissarro. Born in Paris, Lucien moved to England in 1890 where he settled and married, though he frequently traveled back to France. In addition to being a gifted painter, he was also an illustrator and printmaker, exhibiting a synthesis of both French and English stylistic developments in all three art forms. This painting is an early work that shows his father’s influence with its constructive representation of nature. Also prevalent is the influence of Georges Seurat’s pointillism technique, where dots or dashes of pure colors enrich the composition.
