From Thyssen-Bornemisza Collection:
Gauguin moved to Rouen with his wife and four of his five children in January 1884. He had given up his job in the Paris stock-exchange, and made the momentous decision to become a full-time painter. During his relatively affluent time in Paris, he had acquired a magnificent collection of "modern" art, with works by Manet, Degas, Monet, Sisley, Renoir, and especially C├ęzanne, Guillaumin and Pissarro. And in return, he was invited to participate with the Impressionists at their exhibitions in 1879, 1880, 1881 and 1882. Pissarro was his mentor, the two often painted together, and when apart, they corresponded regularly. Our knowledge of Gauguin's stay in Rouen, from January to November 1884, is largely based on his letters to Pissarro.
