Armand Guillaumin (February 16, 1841 – June 26, 1927), was a French impressionist painter and lithographer. Born Jean-Baptiste Armand Guillaumin in Paris, France, he operated at his uncle’s underwear shop while attending night drawing lessons. He likewise worked for a French government railway before studying at the Académie Suisse in 1861. There, he fulfilled Paul Cézanne and Camille Pissarro with whom preserved long-lasting friendships. While he never ever achieved the stature of these two, his influence on their work was significant. Cézanne tried his very first etching based upon Guillaumin paintings of barges on the River Seine.
