Camille Pissarro French painter, considered a leader of the Impressionist movement. Although time has not increased his fame to the level of other great masters, Camille Pissarro was the most outstanding personality of the Paris art scene during his own lifetime. Between 1870 and 1880, his paintings were considered among the first impressionist works. Pissarro's paintings capture the Impressionist style in a pure way they use depth, visible brushstrokes, vibration in color, and careful study of natural light, by Pissarro's paintings are open, clear, and basically landscapes.


This Boulevard Montmartre on a winter morning is one of a few paintings that Camille Pissarro did while living in Paris, recording the clamoring life of the city. Pissarro had as of late come back to the city of Paris, after staying for six years in the more rustic town of Éragny around 25 miles northwest of Paris.
Paris was presently a blazing city and was the focal point for art, business, and exchange. The few Exposition Universalles presented the Metro and the Eiffel Tower which re-imagined what an urban center could be. Pissarro perceived this and needed to document the new quick pace of city life. Pissarro painted this viewpoint on Boulevard Montmartre from his bed room window at the Grand Hôtel de Russie from where he made a series of twelve paintings. In his later years, Pissarro battled repetitive eye contamination and as he needed to protect from the virus wind, he could only paint outside in a warm climate. In order to continue with his work all year round, he leased hotel rooms on upper levels all through Paris and would paint these amazing winged creatures eye see scenes that he could simply see outside his window. This method was a triumph for him, and Pissarro did this in different hotels all through a few urban areas.


The Hermitage Pontoise is the view spoke to the winding town way at the base of a group of houses in Pontoise, France, known as Camille Pissarro's legacy. Pissarro's idyll loaded with locals and perfectly tended nurseries is beyond the naturalist painter's consideration of apparent reality. Camille Pissarro has a legacy behind him of French scholastic scenes, which extended from the moral stories of Poussin to the proto-Cubist scenes of Paul Cézanne, who contemplated and worked with Pissarro. Pissarro stripped his composition of the recorded or wistful over-tones that portrayed the scenes of his quick antecedents. What's more, he utilized light and dull, exhibiting an obvious enthusiasm for the impacts of sun and shade.


As part of a series, Boulevard Montmartre, spring morning showcases Pissarro's skill in focusing on details and conditions. For example, he can show the change in light and environment in every one of the manifestations of Boulevard Montremarte series. The impressionist artist Camille Pissarro was inspired by life when painting the Boulevard Montremarte series. He needed to reflect the bustling city life with carriages and individuals and the structures with his artwork. Pissarro brought life and enthusiasm to the entire series of paintings inside the Boulevard Montremarte.


In the later years of his life, Pissarro increasingly depicted urban subjects in Paris, Rouen, Dieppe, Le Havre and London from the windows of hotels and apartments. The Boulevard Montremart series was finished by Pissarro in only two months inside the bounds of a hotel room. He skipped three hours for lunch, every day, apart from that he painted all day long. Boulevard Montmartre, at night is paintings the only night scene from this series, and is a masterful rendition of the play of lights on dark and wet streets.


In "Red roofs, corner of a village, winter" paintings, he attempted to create a sense of depth in a landscape painting by using a line of slanted roofs with varying red tones to give the image a sense of depth. Camille Pissarro's legacy is best watched over by the Impressionists, who catch the light and give great power and sentiment of development on the painted surface with thick impasto.


The Saint-Sever Bridge, Rouen, Mist this landscape paintings is a cold and cloudy setting situated in the Adur River, in the vicinity of the town of Ruan, France. In the foreground show two small vessels, the smoking chimneys of factories and ships determine composition, dividing the canvas into different angles and giving movement to it. The work is almost a monochromatic gray, with the exception of a few colored point.


Éragny is where Pissarro lived most of his life, after settling in 1884, he lived there until his death in 1903. The town's diversity of landscapes inspired hundreds of paintings from this master, including a variety of colors, shades, and times of day. It is clear from this The Hay Harvest, Eragny paintings that Pissarro used very light citrus tones and applied the paint in a pointillist manner. The light and shadow in the foreground vibrates against a seemingly endless illuminated landscape. The poses of the farmers are jovial and exude the joy they feel about their work.


Sunset at Eragny created in 1890 by Camille Pissarro France artist. This paintings on canvas is the latery pictorial stage in the work of the artist. The painting depicts a flat, countryside landscape with a low horizon, the line of trees and sky appeared yellow because of the sun's last rays. The composition and out of focus look are strongly reminiscent of Monet's compositions.


The new bridge landscape was painted from an apartment's window at 28 Place Dauphine street. From this spot you can see the view that inspired the painter, as his niece reported in a letter. The urban landscape of Paris is a recurring theme in Pissarro's works. Throughout his life he painted several pictures of this same bridge from different angles and with different lighting.


Apple harvest at Eragny It is one of the painter's most colorful paintings the technique used in painting it is almost pointillist. by he builds this paintings with thousands of colored spots a landscape on top of a hill where show the women and a waiter harvest the fruits of the field. The curved horizon gives the work a sense of exquisite dynamism in which the elements characters, trees, baskets, carriage and shadows interact intimately together, and people who live in the country are enveloped by the peacefulness of their surroundings.
