French artists Camille Pissarro (1830-1903) was often considered the guiding spirit of the Impressionist group that included Monet, Renoir, and Degas, among others.  He was the only member who participated in all 8 of their exhibitions (1874-1886), demonstrating his support of their innovative style.  The two works presented in this blog were created in the later period of his career: Vue de Berneval while he was visiting the coast of Normandy and The Boulevard Montmartre at Night in Paris where he spent the final years of his life.
