It is only by drawing often, drawing everything, drawing incessantly, that one fine day you discover to your surprise that you have rendered something in its true character.

Camille Pissarro

Brouillard à l’Hermitage, Pontoise  1879

(b. July 10, 1830, St. Thomas, Danish West Indies–d. Nov. 13, 1903, Paris)
French Impressionist painter, who endured prolonged financial hardship in keeping faith with the aims of Impressionism. Despite acute eye trouble, his later years were his most prolific. The Parisian and provincial scenes of this period include Place du Théâtre Français (1898) and Bridge at Bruges (1903).
