Lot Essay

This work will be included in the forthcoming Camille Pissarro Digital Catalogue Raisonné, currently being prepared under the sponsorship of the Wildenstein Plattner Institute, Inc.

"This was the first painting we bought from Dalzell Hatfield of Los Angeles, a dealer who was known and respected by Alfred Barr. It is a tiny gouache which we have enjoyed ever since we acquired it in 1949. It is on a stand on a table beside the fireplace in the living room at Hudson Pines." —David Rockefeller
