Biography

Born Jacob Abraham Camille Pissarro in 1830 in the West Indies island of St. Thomas, Pissarro was sent to Paris at the age of 12 for his education. Pissarro's formative years were marked by an early exposure to the works of the masters in the Louvre, which ignited his passion for painting. Despite initial resistance from his family, he pursued his ambitions, studying under a variety of instructors, including landscape painter Camille Corot, who influenced Pissarro's early works with his Barbizon school techniques.

Pissarro's development was marked by a persistent dedication to depicting the natural world and the lives of the people within it. His early work is characterised by a pre-Impressionist style, with a palette and technique influenced by Corot and Gustave Courbet. Yet, as the 1860s progressed, Pissarro began to experiment with light and colour, eventually adopting the loose brushwork and vibrant hues that became synonymous with Impressionism.

As a founding member of the Impressionists, Pissarro was the only artist to exhibit in all eight of the group's Paris exhibitions. His works from this period, such as Hoar Frost and The Côte Des Bœufs At L'Hermitage, are celebrated for their luminous portrayal of the French countryside and the rhythmic, humanistic qualities he imparted to rural scenes.

Pissarro's influence extended through his collaborative relationships and mentorships with artists like Paul Cézanne. He was known for his generous spirit and was regarded as a father figure among the Impressionists. Pissarro's later years saw him experimenting with Pointillism, although he eventually returned to the looser, more expressive style of his earlier works.

Throughout his career, Pissarro exhibited in major venues, including the Paris Salon and the Salon des Refusés. His dedication to painting en plein air and his emphasis on light and movement laid the groundwork for Post-Impressionism and further modernist developments.
