Lot description
As one of the leading artists and developers of the Impressionist movement, Camille Pissarro (1830-1903) was known not only for his contributions to the style of the movement, but for the complex theories he applied to Impressionism as well. Pissarro’s works are distinguished by his perception of light as inseparable from the subjects it illuminated. His fluid strokes ranged from the delicate to the bold, allowing the sense of light to go beyond mere sight into the realm of pure emotion. Having studied under Camille Corot, Pissarro went on to study at the École des Beaux-Arts and Académie Suisse where he met Claude Monet and was later introduced to Pierre Auguste Renoir and Alfred Sisley. With their shared resentment towards the Paris Salon and its insistence upon dictated academic formalism, Pissarro and his colleagues held an independent exhibition displaying their Impressionist works in 1874. He was the only artist to display his art at all eight Paris Impressionist Exhibitions (1874-1886) and was considered a major influence on Post-Impressionist artists Paul Gauguin, Paul Cézanne, and Vincent van Gogh, among numerous others.
