Camille Pissarro
« Reply #1 on: September 29, 2019, 12:55:19 PM »
Monet’s friend and contemporary, Camille Pissarro, was a pivotal figure in the Impressionist movement and is known for depicting vibrant landscapes and scenes from the everyday life of French peasants. He often blended the peasant figures into the surroundings instead of having the figures stand out. That way he managed to get the viewers to experience the painting as a whole, instead of focusing on the subjects of the artwork.Much like Monet, Pissarro also created numerous studies of color and light by painting various rural objects under different weather conditions and changing light.
