Camille Pissarro (1830-1903) is one of the most significant artists of the Impressionist movement, and was the only one to participate in all eight Impressionist exhibitions, held from 1874 to 1886. He is today, together with Mary Cassatt and Edgar Degas, regarded as one of the most important Impressionist printmakers, and one of the most influential etchers of the 19th century, alongside Edouard Manet. Pissarro was a prolific printmaker and was technically inclined to push boundaries. He was so committed to etching that he purchased his own printing press in 1894. Pissarros’s subjects are diverse, with landscapes, and the farmers living from it domination. However, views of the city of Rouen, and other Northern Cities also often become inspiration to his etchings. While the subjects of his prints tend to be very simply composed, the techniques used are often extremely attractive and unusual.
