    Dr. Joachim Pissarro will include this work in his forthcoming Catalogue Raisonné of Drawings by Camille Pissarro.

    Pissarro frequently depicted the French countryside, and the present drawing is a landscape in Montfoucault, a small village in Mayenne, between Normandy and Brittany. Ludovic Piette, a close friend of the artist, lived in Montfoucault, and Pissarro and his family often stayed at the Piette home between 1864 and 1876.

    Provenance

    Estate of the artist.
    Acquired by the family of the present owner, circa 1950.
