  • About the artist
    Painter and engraver, Lucien Pissarro was born in Paris, the eldest son of the French Impressionist painter, Camille Pissarro with whom he studied art. At the start of the Franco-Prussian War (1870), the family moved to Britain and settled in Upper Norwood, London. Lucien returned to Paris in 1871 and exhibited at the final Impressionist exhibition (1886) and with the Société des Indépendants. He eventually settled in London in 1890 and moved to Epping in 1893 where he self-published books under the Eragny Press. He joined the New English Art Club in 1906, and in 1907, joined the Fitzroy Street Group led by W. R. Sickert. In 1911 Pissarro was also a founder member of the Camden Town Group. He died in Somerset in 1944.
