“I remember that, although I was full of fervor, I didn't have the slightest inkling, even at forty, of the deeper side to the movement we were pursuing by instinct. It was in the air!”

Camille Pissarro was a French artist born on July 10, 1830. Pissarro contributed to the Impressionist movement and died on November 13, 1903.
