Paul-Camille Guigou (French, 1834 - 1871)
Guigou painted landscapes which explore the brilliant light and arid scenery of his native Provence in the south of France. He initially trained as a lawyer to please his parents but began exhibiting paintings in Marseilles from 1854. After moving to Paris in 1862 he began to exhibit regularly at the Salon. He attended Manet's gatherings at the Café Guerbois and enjoyed the company of Monet, Pissarro and Sisley, but his distinctive paintings do not seem to have been particularly influenced by them.
