In 1901, Camille Pissarro settled in Dieppe in a small hotel room across from the Church of Saint-Jacques, a remarkable Gothic structure and the square, which from time immemorial had been used as a market. The series created in Dieppe in 1901 consists of seven canvases, one of them is The Fair in Dieppe from the Krebs collection, in which the artist discovered a way not only to convey the impression of busy town life, but to create an unusually integrated rhythmic structure through a flawlessly calculated interplay of geometric details.
