Paisaje Francés I (1895) by Francisco Oller y CesteroInstituto de Cultura Puertorriqueña

Through this work, Oller gives us a glimpse into the close bond he shared with artist Camille Pissarro...

... through the depiction of (what is presumed to be) two members of the Pissarro family.

Both Oller and Pissarro hailed from the Caribbean (Puerto Rico and St. Thomas, respectively) and had migrated to Europe to strengthen their careers.

The child represented climbing the hill is presumed to be the son of Pissarro.

The woman surrounded by geese is said to be the mother of the famous Saint Thomian painter who was based in France.
