The art works and reputation of French Impressionist Jean-Baptiste Armand Guillaumin (1841-1927) are hopefully enjoying a comeback.  A prolific artist, Guillaumin was at the center of avant-garde art in Paris—along with Monet, Renoir, Pissarro, as well as Van Gogh and Cezanne—in the late nineteenth century.  The majority of his paintings were landscapes set in France, although he did recreate the scenic view above in Germany.
