Research point: Facing the challenges


Camille Pissarro who was part of the impressionistic movement or rather a father figure and even influenced Post-Impressionists like Vincent can Gogh and Paul Cezanne. He struggled with the art establishment like the others who smelled the changing winds and supported each other to overcome any bouts of selfdoubt. What Eugene Delacroix started with his optical illusion of depicting transparent waterdrops with dots of pure colour needed to be reconfirmed over and over again to help dissidents of their time to continue against Goliath standing their way. Many impressionists were re –established more securely in their minds, after having seen the same line of thoughts they had in the works of John Constable and J.M.W. Turner.

Among spiritual challenges Pissarro in his old age was suffering from eye infections that bound him indoors in cold weathers, his solution to this hindrance was to start painting from hotel room windows, this of course limited his scenes to urban settings.
