Catalogue Note

In 1879, while still a stockbroker and after having purchased works by Camille Pissarro, Paul Gauguin visits Pontoise to paint alongside the impressionist master.  A strong friendship develops, Pissarro introduces the young artist to Cézanne, and he is rapidly invited to participate in the Impressionist Exhibitions (1880, 1881, 1882 and 1886). This wonderful pastel in which one makes out the almost anthropomorphic rock structures of the Carrières du Chou is a testimony to this seminal period of creative interaction and friendships among these major artists.
