This horizontal panorama displays a spaciousness that is unique in Pissarro’s printed work and unknown in that of other Impressionist printmakers. The format is related to the series of four horizontal panels commissioned by Achille Arosa and painted by Pissarro in 1872-73. They may have been originally inspired by the landscape designs of the Japanese woodblock artist Hiroshige. Admiring Rembrandt as he did, Pissarro must also have been aware of the Dutch landscape etchings in wide format, so obviously appropriate for this genre.

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.
