Between 1857 and 1861 he lived in London, preparing for a career in commerce. In 1862, having decided to become a painter, he entered the Atelier Gleyre in Paris and there met Monet, Renoir and Bazille. The friends often worked together in the open air in the Forest of Fontainebleau, in the suburbs of Paris.
