Pissarro’s influence on Cézanne

Camille Pissarro is another I’ll be exploring. He was Cézanne’s most powerful influence, like a father to him. Cézanne moved beyond impressionism to whatever you call his “not mere appearance, but the appearance of something given in appearance.” But I will explore Pissarro as the influence on the influence of Merleau-Ponty.
