Details — Click to read

A superb impression of this subject that is considered one of the artist’s print masterpieces. In fine condition,
with full uncut margins all around. Annotated in pencil by the artist.
Plate no. 8 of the eighteen annotated by Pissarro, ‘P. dèf. e numerate’ (from 3 to 20).
Pissarro’s interest in the theme of the Pontoise Market began in 1881, when he discovered that it was the
ideal subject for his studies, and represented it by means of various artistic techniques.
The artist moved to Eragny in 1884, where he set up his studio and where he bought a printing press in
1891. The press allowed him to personally create “working proofs” and editions directly from his plates.
The master’s greatest lithographic work is the sheet ‘Marché à Pontoise’, c. 1895, where the perfection of the
gradations in tonal values is unsurpassed in the artist’s other lithographic works

The Artist

Camille Pissarro

Born in 1830, Camille Pissarro was a Danish-French impressionist painter and later in his life, (at the age of 54) neo-impressionism. He made important contributions to both the impressionism and post-impressionism movements. He did not have any formal qualifications in art. His father would have preferred him to continue working in his job as a cargo clerk but Pissarro took every opportunity, including breaks from work, to practice drawing.
