Jean Baptiste Armand Guillaumin

1841-1927 France/Impressionism

 

Brief Biography-Jean Baptiste Armand Guillaumin was born in Paris in 1841. He attended night classes while working up to the age of seventeen. In 1861, the Académie Suisse admitted him, and he became a close friend of Paul Cézanne. They met up in Pontoise in 1874, where they held the first exhibition of impressionist paintings. In 1886, he married and settled in La Creuse. His encounters with Vincent Van Gogh some years later influenced his brighter colours. A fortunate win of a large lottery prize in 1891, gave him the freedom to spend all of his time travelling and painting. He is said to be a cofounder of the first impressionist group, and Guillaumin's work had a lasting influence on some of the most notable artists of the genre.
