Camille Pissarro’s Sought-After ‘Snow Effect’ Landscape Comes to Auction at Christie’sOct 21, 2022 10:00 EDT
Camille Pissarro was an Impressionist painter well-known for featuring rural landscapes. His work portrays changing seasons through the impressive utilization of light and color theory. The upcoming Christie’s auction features an oil painting by Camille Pissarro. Effet de neige à L’Hermitage, Pontoise depicts a winter scene at Pontoise. As per Katherine Rothkopf, “Pissarro found the winter season to be most inspiring. His works explored all motifs of the season. These works also set him ahead of other painters working on effets de neige or snow effects.” The available painting depicts brick homes, green stretches, and trees. Pissarro was a master in painting snow elements using thick brush strokes.
The auction also presents multiple works by Edgar Degas. One highlight is a pastel drawing titled Deux Femmes Causant. The art piece depicts a conversation between two women at a racetrack. Degas’ work is noteworthy for exploring urban scenes, detailed drawings, and light use. A charcoal painting by early Modernist and Impressionist artist Édouard Manet is also noteworthy. The drawing of three dog heads features Manet’s simplistic style and suppressed transitional details. This auction of the Ann & Gordon Getty Collection also offers multiple watercolor paintings by Giacomo Guardi. The artist’s work featured scenes of Venice, Guardi’s native town. The available Rialto Bridge watercolor is among his sought-after compositions. Collectors can also explore the artworks of Fantin-Latour, Canaletto, Joli, and Sargent and register to bid online by visiting Christie’s.
