EXCERPT: PISSARRO'S PAINTING STYLES
WINTER: Pissarro liked painting winter landscapes because of the quality of the light and shadows.The shadows were not colorless and dark to him. They were instead myriad tones to be captured by a muted palette. Winter also softened and blurred forms while reflecting light. These were ideal conditions for the Impressionist style.
HIS FRIEND'S STYLE: By 1886, Pissarro felt he had to try something new. He’d painted incessantly in the Impressionist style for years and was tired of it. He was close to Seurat so picked Pointillism, which was Seurat’s special painting strength. Pissarro was amazed at how slow Pointillism was as a process. He had a naturally spontaneous temperament which was well suited to Impressionism but not Pointillism. Seurat had an entirely different temperament which was mathematically suited to that process. Pissarro had always been prolific too but it was impossible to be prolific with Pointillism. He ultimately decided that it would be better to revise his Impressionist style rather than carry on with Pointillism.
