Apple picking at Eragny-sur-Erpe paint by the French artist Camille Pissarro (1830-1903) – Dallas Museum of Art (USA). 1888, Oil on Canvas.
Pissarro employed beautiful combinations of light and color to convey a sense of the utopia that he believed could be achieved in an anarchist society. His paintings Apple-Picking and Apple-Harvest, which depict workers in Pissarro’s future anarchistic utopia, feature a bright hue created by thousands of carefully placed dots of colorful paint. The sun radiates across the rural landscape, and the workers appear happy and peaceful as they harvest apples from the trees.
