64013: CAMILLE PISSARRO (French, 1831-1903) Jardins For
Camille Pissarro was likely influenced to work with the lithographer George Thornley by Theo Van Gogh, brother of Vincent Van Gogh, and the influential director of the Boussod-Valadon Gallery in Paris, as a result of Thornley's masterful lithographic interpretations of drawings by Pierre Puvis de Chavannes. Thornley had previous worked with Edgar Degas starting in 1888 and had published a portfolio of 15 chine appliqués based on Degas' drawings. Clearly Pissarro who was just as prolific an artist as Degas was intrigued with Thornley and relished the opportunity to collaborate with him as well. The result of this union is this extraordinary chine appliqué Jardins Formals completed in 1890.
