Lucien Pissarro

Paris 1863 - London 1944

Lucien Pissarro was born on February 20, 1863, in Paris, the eldest son of the Impressionist Camille Pissarro. The family fled the Franco-Prussian War in 1870. They went to London, but returned to Louveciennes in 1871, then to Pontoise. His association with the artist friends of his father, Cézanne, Manet, and Monet, and art lessons from his father furthered Pissarro's interest and talent for painting. Lucien Pissarro started his career first as a landscape painter.
Beginning in 1880, he became interested in the techniques of woodprinting and woodcutting. In the years from 1884 until 1890, Pissarro worked for the printer Manzi. In 1890, he took part in the eighth Impressionist exhibit with 10 paintings and graphical works. Lucien Pissarro was one of the first artists of the Neoimpressionistic movement and exhibited under that rubric in the "Salon des Indépendants." He exhibited with the avantgarde group "Les Vingt" in Brussels.
In 1890, he emigrated to England and obtained his English citizenship in 1916. Lucien Pissarro maintained friendly contact with the Preraffaelites and the Plein-Air painters.
Pissarro founded the "Eragny Press" in 1894, which would play an important role in the development of European book art. He left the "Société des Indépendants" in 1896. Lucien Pissarro exhibited in the "New English Art Club" in 1904, then also with the "Fitzroy Street Group." In 1911, he was one of the founders of the "Camden Town Group," and in 1919, he helped found the "Monarro Group," which propagated Impressionism in England. The correspondence between Lucien and his father serves as an important document for the Impressionist and Neo-Impressionist movements.
Lucien Pissarro died on July 10, 1944, in London.
