Impressionist leader, Camille Pissarro, lived and worked often in the French countryside. His wonderful scenes of rural and everyday life have become some of the most recognizable for their style and coloration. Pissarro’s work continued into the printed medium where he had great success in validating the high value of prints.
Pissarro began working alongside Cézanne, Degas, Renoir, and Monet. It was around this time in 1873 that Pissarro was involved in the establishment of a collective, Société Anonyme des Artistes, which allowed for public exhibitions of artists that were at the time not being accepted into the Salon. The first exhibition in 1874 was greeted with relative success and helped to cement the Impressionist movement.
In his later years, Pissarro embraced the printmaking medium and joined the Society Painter-Printmakers, started by Félix Bracquemond and Henri-Charles Guérard in 1889. The goal of this society was to increase the validity of a print by displaying it alongside works of originality by the artist. Later in 1894, Pissarro also had some of his prints published in L’Estampe Originale.
Pissarro died in Paris in 1903 being hailed as the “Father of Impressionism.” Although he is not the most prolific of the impressionists, he had the most influence in the development of style and technique.
