Museum Barberini
Potsdam, Germany

In the 1880s Camille Pissarro painted idealized images of rural life. Here, two peasant children are warming themselves at a brushwood fire on a cold winter’s morning. The transparent volumes of the clouds of smoke consist of a grid of brushstrokes, while the landscape and figures are painted with dots in the style of Neo-Impressionism.
