Born into a family of painters, Ciceri trained with his great-uncle, Eugène Isabey, who was exploring landscapes in his work. During this period, Isabey and Ciceri shared living quarters in the Pigalle neighborhood in Paris, where they were both influenced by their fellow residents: Théodore Rousseau, Jules Dupré, Narcisse Diaz, Johan Barthold Jongkind, and Jean-François Millet. Ciceri’s landscape painting, which became the basis for the rest of his career, reflected the concerns typical of these innovative artists including the preservation of France’s rural, pristine landscapes, such as the current example.
