`Do not define too closely the outlines of things; it is the brushstroke of the right value and color which should produce the drawing'. A look at this painting shows how Pissarro made this his own practice. `Don't work bit by bit but paint everything at once by placing tones everywhere with brushstrokes of the right color and value...' This has an important bearing on the color harmony so splendidly carried out here. Color is not localized but is picked up like a melody in various parts of the canvas--the blue of the sky in the blue of doors and shadows, the red of the roofs in field and foreground earth--so that all comes into happy relation.
Style: French Pointillist/Impressionist.
