"Hay Harvest at Eragny" was painted by Camille Pissarro in 1887.
Eragny is a rural village where Pissarro spent most of his life: from the time when he settled with his family in 1884 until his death in 1903. Different landscapes captured the mind of this great artist. There are all kinds of displays of color, shade, climate and time among the hundreds of paintings inspired by this village.
In this work, Pissarro uses clear and citric colors applying the paint according to the methods of pointillism. The shadow on the bottom-left gives contrast to the seemingly endless landscape. The farmers' attitudes are cheerful, representing the intrinsic joy found in their labor.
"Hay Harvest at Eragny" is currently displayed in the Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam.
