From the beginning of the 1860s, Pissarro’s work was selected to be shown in the Paris Salon. Although he was against everything the Salon stood for, he needed to participate in order to gain recognition.
Camille Pissarro’s artwork did not make him a wealthy man during his lifetime and did not always receive praise from critics. However, he developed a reputation as a dynamic artist and displayed his paintings in many exhibitions during his career. These included:Salon des Refusés (1863)Impressionist Exhibitions (1874 – 1886)
