• 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.
