Did you know?

Camille Pissarro favored rural life and lived in the small village of La Roche-Guyon during the 1860s, when this print was made.


A very early etching by the Impressionist artist Camille Pissarro, this view of the massive rocks at La Roche-Guyon reveals the artist’s painterly attitude toward printmaking. Using only the etched line and a layer of ink left on his printing plate's surface, Pissarro created a dramatic landscape filled with brilliant sunlight and soft shadows.
