Pissarro painted this incredible piece called Peasant's House in 1887. The artist had just met Paul Signac and Georges Seurat a few years earlier. Their influence on his style, however brief, was a crucial beacon on the history of art. The change in his style marks the moment where the Impressionist movement slowly starts to fade away and gives space to the Post-Impressionism. Changes happen not only on the subject matter but also on the artist's approach to the technique.
This painting shows the ideals and principles of the Post-Impressionism in each form and shape of it. It is entirely composed of small patches of colors that create the environmental aspect of the piece. The colors seen are not the colors the viewer's eye catches. Hundreds of little dots of several colors come together, creating a new hue that is not previously mixed on the palette. This technique revolutionized art history and brought a new way of thinking light and color.
The painting shows a regular house, seen from the outside of the front gate. The quaint environment is surrounded by nature and by a thin little path that leads the way into the home. A green grassy field covers the outskirts of the house. A thick bindweed also coats the walls around it.
The walls of the house are nearly entirely covered. The house is enclosed behind the green fence and large rooftop. The roof is fascinating. The triangular shape supports with two rectangular chimneys. It reflects the sunlight, and it is wholly composed of little patches of orange, blue and yellow, that together make it look like this roof is brown.
The sky is bright and blue, showing that the artist chose to set this scene on a beautiful sunny day. Pissarro adorns the blue sky with cottony white clouds that slowly merge into the blue patches of color. We can see a large square patch of shadow in front of the house. This shadow comes from the perspective of the painter and could even be his canvas.
The whole color palette is subtle and pastel. But this light and the natural color palette is composed by tonalities of tiny patches of colors. This polychromatic effect was a direct reference to Seurat and Signac.
