Chemin sous bois à Pontoise

Camille Pissarro French

Not on view

Pissarro used a mixture of aquatint and etched line to create the effect of dappled light in a wooded landscape in this print. The work dates from a seminal year in the history of nineteenth-century printmaking, when Pissarro worked closely with Edgar Degas and Mary Cassatt to experiment with intaglio techniques, exploring the aesthetic possibilities for making Impressionist prints.
