Pissarro participated in the first independent exhibition of the Impressionists in 1874 and remained the most loyal member of the group, contributing to all the subsequent exhibitions. Although Pissarro specialized in landscapes, he also painted genre scenes, portraits, and still lifes. His wife was extremely fond of flowers and always grew masses of flowers in their garden. She often gathered bouquets for her husband’s still lifes, which regularly featured peonies of various shades, but especially pink.
