  • Using loose, feathered brushwork and jewel-like colors, Pissarro depicts a woman bathing her feet in a stream, with her stockings and wooden shoes resting on the bank.
  • Pissarro relished painting figures in the French countryside. This canvas is one of three versions that he devoted to this subject.
  • While Impressionists are known for painting out-of-doors, Pissarro created this series in the studio, working from a model and preparatory drawings.
