Camille Pissarro part - 3

1873 Self-Portrait
oil on canvas
Musée d'Orsay, Paris

Camille Pissarro (1830-1903) was a Danish-French Impressionist and Neo-Impressionist painter born on the island of St. Thomas in the Danish West Indies (now the US Virgin Islands). His importance resides in his contributions to the Impressionist movements. He studied from great forerunners including Gustave Courbet and Camille Corot. He later studied and worked alongside Georges Seurat and Paul Signac when he took on the Neo-Impressionist style at the age of 54.

Pissarro is the only artist to have shown in all eight Paris Impressionist exhibitions between 1874 and 1886. He acted as a father-figure, not only to the Impressionists, but to all four of the major Post-Impressionists, Georges Seurat, Paul Cézanne, Vincent van Gogh and Paul Gauguin.

I hope the story of Pissarro’s life and work is of interest because it is a major series running over the next few weeks. Though I haven’t included absolutely every piece of Pissarro’s work, I am featuring well over a thousand examples, the better to understand his legacy.


This is part 3 of a major 21-part series on the works of Camille Pissarro. For a fuller biography see part 1, and for earlier works, see Parts 1 and 2 also.
