"The Path to Les Poutilleux, Pontoise" in 1881 by Pissarro (1830-1903). Oil on canvas (56x47cm). Los Angeles County Museum of Art. By the 1880s, Pissarro went back to painting the life of country people, which he had done in Venezuela in his youth. Degas described it as “peasants working to make a living”. Renoir referred as “revolutionary,” in his attempt to portray the "common man." This period marked the end of the Impressionist period due to Pissarro’s leaving the movement.
