Picture View from my window It was presented at the Eighth, last exhibition of the Impressionists in 1886. Pissarro exhibited his painting in a separate room, next to the paintings of Sera and Signac, apparently wanting to emphasize that he completely relates his work to that new direction in painting, which is called neo-impressionism. Never again will an artist be so close to Sera's painting and at the same time so far from his own impressionistic style. Pissarro’s rare ability to instinctively feel nature is completely lost in the picture. The new technique used by the artist - divisionism - consists in the use of colors based on the laws of mutual complementation and contrast. Therefore, the texture of the picture is a small rounded brush strokes that create spots of different colors. These spots, wrote critic Revald, “correspond to various elements: light, shadow, individual colors and the whole color scheme. Their connection occurs directly in front of the viewer.
