The Garden of the Tuileries on a Spring Morning

Camille Pissarro French

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 820

This picture, like the two winter views of the Jardin des Tuileries by Pissarro in the Museum's collection (66.36 and 1979.414), belongs to a series that he painted from his apartment in the rue de Rivoli in 1899. Here, spring has arrived: underneath the blooming trees and soft blue sky, a woman can be seen at lower center, pushing a brightly-attired baby in a carriage. Having sold a number of the scenes to his dealer Durand-Ruel, later that year Pissarro rented the same apartment and executed another fourteen works.
