Pissarro snooping in Octave Mirbeau’s garden
Octave Mirbeau was a journalist,writer and art critic, a fan of the impressionists.

The exhibition ‘Painting the Modern Garden, Monet to Matisse’ was first organised by the Cleveland Museum of Art, before it moved to the Royal Academy in London. I would have loved to see this one in the RA too, but it was only shown in Cleveland…
