Pissarro (Camille)
Ɵ Original drawing. Charcoal (Woman with fichu, hands on hips, in a landscape, 20.5 x 16.5 cm, monogrammed lower right), from the Éragny period, circa 1887-1889, framed. A fine drawing from the Éragny period. Camille Pissarro (1830-1903) was one of the pillars of the Impressionist triumvirate, along with Monet and Sisley, before he followed Seurat into Pointillism. Born in the West Indies, he moved to Paris in 1855, where he was influenced by Corot, Millet and Courbet. It was at the "Académie Suisse" that he met Cézanne, Guillemet, Monet and Guillaumin, who were to become his friends. Admitted to the 1866 Salon, he was immediately spotted by Zola, alongside Manet and Monet, notably in the famous series of articles for L'Événement at the 1866 Salon: "Un inconnu dont personne ne parlea sans doute" ("An unknown that no one will talk about"). Like many members of his artistic entourage, he developed libertarian and anarchist ideas, becoming a convinced Dreyfusard. He received and significantly influenced Gauguin and Van Gogh, while his meeting with the young Seurat at Durand-Ruel's was decisive for Pissarro himself, moving him towards a less strict form of Divisionism than that of his friend. Pissarro was the only major painter to participate in all eight Impressionist exhibitions, held between 1874 and 1886, ahead of Degas (7) and Berthe Morisot (7). Provenance: Dessins anciens et modernes, Drouot / Ader Nordmann, November 14, 2014, no. 210 (reproduced).
