About the artwork

Debate over the importance of representational accuracy in landscape painting, versus alterations for the sake of compositional interest, fascinated both Pissarro and Cézanne. Cézanne was a young art student when he first met Pissarro in 1861. From late 1872 until mid 1874 Cézanne lived in Auvers-sur-Oise, just under ninety minutes’ walk from Pontoise, in order to work more closely with his elder friend and mentor. Cézanne lived in Pontoise itself from May to October 1881, and returned there again the following summer, painting outdoors alongside Pissarro. This work was painted during this time of direct dialogue between the two artists.
