DESCRIPTION:  To be included in the forthcoming Catalogue Raisonné of Drawings by Camille Pissarro by the Camille Pissarro Project.

This delightful study of a woman eating soup is demonstrative of Pissarro’s interest in everyday life and the crucial break he made from the canon of Academic painting that dominated art and the Salon in the early nineteenth century (historical, classical, historical landscape). These sketches were preparatory work for his finished paintings depicting modern life. This drawing would most likely have been made when Pissarro was gathering material in Pontoise.
