Technique, style and method of Camille Pissarro Style and method. Pissarro's career was indeed a long and arduous search for the perfect method of expressing himself and his ideas. Younger painters, beginning with Cezanne in 1882, Gauguin in 1877, and later Matisse and Picabia sought him out.

Cezanne revered him, saying he was like father to him. Camille Pissarro (French: [kamij pisaʁo]; 10 July 1830 – 13 November 1903) was a Danish-French Impressionist and Neo-Impressionist painter born on the island of St Thomas (now in the US Virgin Islands, but then in the Danish West Indies). While the Impressionists are known for their depictions of city streets and country leisure, Pissarro covered his canvases with images of the day-to-day life of French peasants.

Summary of Camille Pissarro. The only painter to exhibit in all eight Impressionist exhibitions organized between 1874 and 1886, Camille Pissarro became a pivotal artist and mentor within the movement.
