The drawing Paysanne aux seaux relates to an oil painting and two subsequent prints Pissarro made based on the earlier painting’s composition. Pissarro painted La Mère Presle portant des seaux dans la cour de la maison de Piette à Montfoucault in 1874, (no. 369 in the Pissarro & Durand-Ruel Catalogue Raisonné), and revisited the subject in two etchings of 1891 titled Paysanne au puits (no. 100 & 101 in the Loys Delteil Prints Catalogue Raisonné). The oil painting, La Mère Presle portant des seaux dans la cour de la maison de Piette à Montfoucault, depicts the well that stood in the courtyard of Ludovic Piette, a close friend of Pissarro’s who lived in the small hamlet of Monfoucault. The same well is also visible in another oil painting, Cour de la maison de Piette à Montfoucault, of 1876 (no. 471 in PDR). Pissarro and his family stayed at the Piette house on six separate occasions between 1864 and 1876. The peasant woman depicted in front of the well, known as Mère Presle, posed for Pissarro on a number of times when the artist was in Monfoucault. Although Pissarro ties to Montfoucault loosened when Ludoic Piette died in 1878, Pissarro revisited some favorite motifs from Montfoucault in his studio later in his career.
