Together with Gauguin, Schuffenecker was trained at the Académie Suisse in 1872, and at the Académie Colarossi in 1883. In 1869 he received a "first class mention in design", as a pupil of Father Athanase, and from 1872 to 1881, he continued his training with Carolus-Duran, admittance to the annual Salon included. In 1882 and 1883, however, his paintings were refused by the Salon jury. So Schuffenecker, in 1884, joined the Société des Artistes Indépendants and, in 1886, the Impressionists in their 8th and final exhibition.
