Display caption

Lucien Pissarro was the eldest son of the French Impressionist artist, Camille Pissarro. As an artist, he was greatly influenced both by his father and, for a period, Georges Seurat. He moved to England in 1890, and was a founder member of the Camden Town Group in 1911. He became a British citizen in 1916, but liked to call himself a 'Channel painter'. In this landscape Pissarro is concerned with the play of light on snow, and contrasting tones. Pissarro lived mostly in London, but this picture was made at Coldharbour, near Dorking, in Surrey.
