By the end of 1871 almost all the painters returned to Paris after the war. Paul Durand-Ruel (a French art dealer and important advocate of the Impressionists) purchased several canvases from the young artists and exhibited them in London, in 1872. Manet was represented by 13 canvases, Camille Pissarro by 9, Sisley by 6, Monet by 4.

With this huge purchase of paintings by the young artists Durand-Ruel tied his career with the new movement, although he had not been able to sell any of those paintings. But he thought that 'a true picture dealer should also be an enlightened patron;...he should, if necessary, sacrifice his immediate interest to his artistic convictions.' Later his attempts to sell those works not only faced formidable obstacles, but also undermined his credibility among many collectors who refused to share his admiration and even considered him insane.

In 1874 some of Pissarro's paintings were sold at an auction sale in Paris at unexpectedly high prices - 950 francs. He wrote to one of his friends: "It was even said that this is astonishing for a straight landscape".
Also then Durand-Ruel was preparing a publication of of a 3-volumes catalog with 300 reproductions of the best paintings in his possession - among them five by Pissarro.
Theodore Duret, French art critic, wrote to Pissarro: "..you have an intimate and profound feeling for nature and a power of brush.."
