Pissarro painted this piece in 1871 when he forcibly moved to the outskirts of London. During the Franco-Prussian war, the painter had no choice but to leave France. The artist didn’t have a French nationality, and it was no longer possible for him to remain in the country.
There, he met the Parisian art dealer Paul Durand-Ruel that helped him sell his art for the rest of his life. Even so, he felt like an outsider. In the Brittish Isles, the Impressionist movement hadn’t been all that well accepted as it had been on the rest of Europe. He would write letters saying that his art wouldn’t catch.
Historians debate is that it is one of the reasons why the paintings completed during this period have this unique style and stands out when compared to the rest of the body of work of the artist.
The painting shows an outside view of Dulwich College. In front of the building, there is a little lake. Pissarro was positioned across the pond so that we can see the edge of the water body with some trees and a woman facing the lake.
The little lagoon, colored in shades of light blue and brown, has a mirrored surface and reflects the rest of the scene above it.
On the other side of the street, there is a tree with a dark trunk and a colorful bright treetop.
The British style is visible in the form of the building, which is represented with dark red bricks and triangular rooftops. The structure is massive and extends all across the painting, but as most of the traditional British architecture, it’s not high.
This painting is subtle and has a severe palette. However, the colors are sophisticated and more representational than the artist would often use. The choice of hues might be an attempt to understand the British painting style of the time.
Pissarro learned from British artists like John Constable and J. M. W. Turner that painting in the open air would provide the best light studies. After he left London, he kept on improving that skill. It’s possible to notice that it was around this time that his paintings started looking more loose and spontaneous.
