Camille Pissarro
  • Camille Pissarro (July 10, 1830 November 13,
    1903) was a French Impressionist painter. Camille
    Pissarro was born in Saint-Thomas, Virgin Islands.

Family Background
  • Abraham Gabriel Pissarro, of Sephardic Jewish
    ancestry, and Rachel Manzano-Pomié, a Dominican
    of Spanish descent, gave birth to Pissarro.
  • The Pissarro's operated a dry goods store in what
    is now known as the Pissarro Building, in Queen's
    Quarter, Charlotte Amalie.

4
Childhood
  • Pissarro was the third son of a Jewish merchant
    of French, originally Portuguese, descent. His
    family lived above their shop on Charlotte
    Amalie, the main street of St. Thomas. When
    Camille was 12 years old, his parents sent him
    away to a school in Passy, near Paris. The young
    Pissarro showed an early talent for drawing, and
    he began to visit the collections of the Louvre.

Art Training
  • When Camille was 12, his parents sent him away to
    a school near Paris. The young Pissarro showed an
    early talent for drawing, and he began to visit
    the collections of the Louvre. At age 17 he
    returned to St. Thomas, where his father expected
    him to enter the family business. Pissarro was
    more interested in sketching at the harbor,
    however, and, after meeting the visiting Danish
    painter Fritz Melbye, he sailed with the older
    artist to Venezuela in November 1852. when he
    returned to St. Thomas in August 1854, his
    parents finally realized that no amount of
    argument would change their son's determination
    to be a painter, and so in the fall of 1855 he
    left home for the last time, bound for Paris.

6
Influenced..
  • Pissarro had great influence on the
    impressionists and their followers, including the
    neoimpressionist Georges Seurat, whose
    pointillist technique the older painter emulated
    after 1886.
