Pissarro lived in Louveciennes from the spring of 1869 until the outbreak of the Franco-Prussian War in July 1870. This village, a suburb of Paris near the Seine river, was occupied by the Prussians during the siege of Paris. Pissarro and his family took refuge in Montfoucault, then London, returning in the summer of 1871 to find his house in a state of utter dereliction. His studio was ransacked and most of his paintings and drawings were destroyed. Pissarro stayed in Louveciennes for nearly a year before moving to Pontoise in 1872.
