From the age of nineteen (1905-1907), he worked in a tawny style, but never deviated in Cubism, and, unlike others, never found that post-Impressionism was filling not his artistic needs. Around 1903, the great art lover François Depeaux noticed. At Depeaux, Robert Antoine Pinchon has many opportunities to converse with Albert Lebourg, Camille Pissarro and Claude Monet. Monet who defines it as "An amazing paw in the service of a surprising eye".
