Garden at Val Hermeil

Camille Pissarro

Camille Pissarro - Garden at Val Hermeil
After the 1870s, Camille Pissarro changed his view of painting which was reflected in his works. This transformation is visible when comparing Garden at Val Hermeil with another work by this artist in the collection of the National Gallery Prague - Pontoise (1867). While the construction of the space in Pontoise is reminiscent of Corot’s and Cézanne’s methods, in Garden in Val Hermeil, which was made in Eragny, the boundaries of the depicted objects lose on prominence. The painter focused on the optical values, combining the impressionistic technique with real vision enhancing thus the import of the figure.
