Born on 07.10.1830 in the Lesser Antilles island St.Thomas Pissarro began in 1852 for two years to paint in Caracas with a friend, and then in 1855 to study in Paris at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts and the Suisse Academie. In the pictures of this time, highly-toned mood landscapes, particularly the influence of Corot style can be felt. Only through his contact with Claude Monet in 1859, the impressionistic elements reinforced in his painting. To a free handling of the colour to reflect air and light impressions, he found after a visit to London in 1870/71 through the study of Turner's paintings.
Back in France he worked closely with Paul Cézanne in Pontoise and Auvers-sur-Oise. There he created his first still life. A phase of pointillism is to 1885 due to contact with George Seurat. He became one of the most important artists of this style through his involvement with the independent exhibitions of the Impressionists. However, the 90s brought the father of seven children, the desired artistic recognition. His solo exhibitions in Paris, where he died at the 13.11.1903, were great successes. There are now no longer fields, meadows and orchards but the city with its many faces in the centre of his choice. Today his images are distinguished by a high degree of freedom, Fresh and beguiling colours.
