Les jardins de Marlfield House sous la neige
(The Marlfield House Gardens Under the Snow)


Signed “H. Claude Pissarro” (lower right)
Pastel on card

This pastel by Hugues Claude Pissarro captures the snowy garden archway at Marlfield House, a historic Irish country house. Renowned for the vigor and vivacity of his brushwork, Pissarro possesses an intuitive understanding of light and color that permeates his compositions and gives life to his canvases. Les jardins de Marlfield House sous la neige exudes the lightness and vitality of his renowned oeuvre. The pastel is filled with brilliant light and unexpected color reflecting off of the bright white snow.

Hailing from a long lineage of painters, Pissarro's artistic talents were cultivated at an early age. He exhibited his first works at the young age of 14 and later studied in Paris at the École du Louvre and École Normale Supérieure. A 1959 White House commission to paint the portrait of President Eisenhower cemented his reputation as an artist of renown, and his work has since been featured in important exhibitions throughout Europe and the United States. While his style has evolved throughout his career, he is best known for his Post-Impressionist works such as the present piece, which are highly collected.

The work is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity signed by the artist.
