Snowscape with cows

Time for a seasonal painting by one of impressionism's greatest masters, Camille Pissarro (1830-1903). Although eclipsed in the general public's view by Monet, his contribution to the development of this style should not be underestimated. This snowscape from 1874 was painted in the French village of Montfoucault and it depicts the home of fellow painter Ludovic Piette. More on Pissarro in the wikipedia article linked to below.
