Impressionistic Landscape-Camille Pissarro


Camille Pissarro was a major contributor to Impressionist landscape painting for at least two reasons. First, because he gave considerable advice and encouragement to younger painters, including Gauguin (1848-1903) and Cezanne (1839-1906). Second, because - along with Claude Monet (1840-1926) and Alfred Sisley (1839-99) - Pissarro formed a trio of Impressionist painters who were devoted to the practice of plein-air painting, which was the hallmark of pure Impressionism. Sadly, towards the end of his life, an eye complaint obliged him to retreat indoors and paint views from windows, a technique exemplified in the highly popular series of views of Boulevard Montmartre (1897-8), which he painted at night and during the day, from his hotel window, in a wide variety of weather conditions.
