1830 - 1903
Camille Pissarro was born in the Danish West Indies and was a well known Impressionist and Neo-Impressionist painter. He worked alongside and mentored many other great artists, such as Paul Gauguin and Georges Seurat. His work was revolutionary at the time because he painted the ‘common man’ in natural settings.
Pissarro was the only artist that exhibited works in all eight of the Paris Impressionist shows.
Blessed are they who see beautiful things in humble places where other people see nothing.
