The Garden of the Tuileries on a Winter Afternoon

Camille Pissarro French

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 820

Pissarro rented a large apartment at 204 rue de Rivoli in Paris for the first half of 1899. From its windows facing the Jardin des Tuileries, he painted six views of the garden (including this work and two others in the Metropolitan), in which the twin steeples of the church of Sainte-Clotilde punctuate the vast expanse of sky. Attentive to changes in light, atmosphere, and climate, as well as to the comings and goings of strollers, at different times of day and seasons of the year, Pissarro was able to extract a variety of pictures from a single site.
