Collection: Camille Pissarro & Paul Cézanne

Camille Pissarro (1830-1903) was born in the Virgin Islands but went to study in Paris as a boy. With his interest in naturalism combined with his Impressionistic palette, his work explored new ways of experimenting with traditional painting methods. Pissarro is often seen as the patriarch of the Impressionist movement. He always encouraged young artists, and brought them together to share, discuss, and work.

French painter Paul Cézanne (1839 - 1906) ranks among the most well-known Post-Impressionists. His work had a profound effect on the modern art of the 20th-century, and his style was highly influential to later Cubist and Fauve artists. His works are known for their loose brushstrokes, layers of paint that create architectural volumes, and use of color and light to create moods. Late in his career, he painted exclusively in Aix-en-Provence in the south of France, where he died in 1906.
