Settled in Paris at the beginning of the 20th century, Ramon Pichot (Barcelona, 1871 - Paris, 1925), who had worked in Barcelona with Ramon Casas, Santiago Rusiñol, Joaquim Mir and Isidre Nonell, lived in the Bohemian and artistic environment of Montmartre. The initiatory journey to Paris was frequent among many artists, but Pichot went there to stay. In Paris he would become integrated in a colony of Catalan and Spanish artists and intellectuals, he would get to know and received influences of the post-impressionist and Fauvist artistic trends, and he participated in numerous international events, such as the show of the scandal of the fauves, and made contact with dealers and merchants.
