Jean-Baptiste Armand Guillaumin was a French painter, he was born in 1841 and died in 1927. Among the first members of the Impressionist movement, he was part of the artists exhibited at the Salon des Refusés in 1863. He became friend with Cézanne and painted with him the banks of the river Seine. Water was the favorite theme of Guillaumin, the one he would continue to draw in his paintings. Around 1880, he became friend with Van Gogh and exhibited in the United States in 1886, thanks to Durand-Ruel.
In 1892, fortune favoured him and he won the National Lottery, which allowed him to be financially independent. Member of the Crozant School, he developed a more vivid palette, more assertive from 1901.
Armand Guillaumin left a substantial work, including many landscapes and seascapes in vivid tones.
Friend of Pissarro, Cézanne participated in the development of a new vision of landscape painting, a vision that would later influence the most famous Impressionists.
