Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
- n. An artist or draftsman who works in landscape; a landscape-painter.
‘Paysagist’ comes from the French ‘paysage,’ countryside.
“[Pisarro] lived and worked as befitted a 'paysagist,' in the midst of a beautiful stretch of country at Eragny, outside Gisora, not far from Monet's residence at Giverny.”
“There is yet another qualification which a paysagist to be of any must certainly possess. The gift of imagination is often forgotten.”
