If you have ever been to the French countryside, maybe you’d like to compare your photographs of the lovely landscapes to what Camille Pissarro saw there over one hundred years ago. Of course, your photos have the clarity of digital technology seen through a camera’s lens, and Pissarro’s paintings were designed to show the views as he saw and felt them. He’s not called, “The Dean of Impressionism” for nothing, as his works will make you stand back and “feel” the view.
Camille Pissarro’s fine art paintings of the hillsides, farms and gardens of France capture the amazing views of the countryside and the people who lived there. He was born in 1830, in St. Thomas in the Caribbean, and was sent to private boarding school in Paris at the young age of 12. He remained in France, and made art his life for the next sixty years.
