Camille Pissarro, Entrance to the Village of Voisins, 1872; © Musée d'Orsay.
The original of this Pissarro painting is beautifully naturalistic, full of subtlety and life. Its carefully composed view — titled in French "Entrée du Village de Voisins" — gives you a sort of "you are there" sensation, as though you can almost smell the earth, and feel the coolness of the air. Sadly, the oddly colored, quickly executed reproduction shown below lacks all of these qualities, and fails to capture the depth, emotion, and seasonal details of the authentic work.
