About This Painting:
Fellow Daily Painter Roxanne Steed and I got together to paint her beautiful garden over the week end. It's always a delight to paint alongside another artist. Monet, Manet and Renoir often painted together in Monet's Garden or at the famous "frog pond".
Painting the Frog Pond Together...
Claude Monet and Pierre Renoir set up their easels at a popular swimming spot, The Frog Pond, and painted the scene before them. Above is Renoir's version, below Monet's.
Pissarro and Cezanne painted together on location early in Cezanne's career both artists certainly benefitted from their association. Pissaro and Cezanne painted together at Louveciennes and Pontoise.
Paul Cézanne and Camille Pissarro rarely painted side by side. Cézanne's solitary nature and obsessive working methods would not permit it, just as the latter's sense of art as a common, progressive enterprise would soon take him other places. However, they painted in front of and in direct response to each other's work. Besides a friendship, they also shared a peculiar space all their own, at the edge of Impressionism. Geographically, that meant Pontoise, twenty-five miles northwest of Paris, although Cézanne begged his friend to follow him to the south of France. By disposition, it meant two restless artists poring over Impressionist techniques and subject matter in search of a more lasting future. ~ from O, Pioneers by John Haber, read the full text here.
