Biography Camille Pissarro (Pissarro Camille)
Born in the town of Charlotte Amalie on St. Thomas (Virgin Islands), July 10, 1830. In 1855, Camille Pissarro moved to France and became an artist. By the end of 1860, he painted landscapes, with particular attention to image the illuminated objects in the air. Unlike Claude Monet, Pissarro was not limited to landscape painting, and often turned to scenes from the life of peasants Pontoise, where he lived from 1872 until 1882. Pissarro was accused of imitating Jean-Francois Millet, but, in contrast to the romantic realism of the latter, Pissarro painting seems more naturalistic. After 1885 he worked briefly in divizionistskoy manner, invented Georges Seurat and Paul Signac, but by 1890 returned to his own style. In the last years of his life, despite the deterioration of vision, the artist created a series of Paris, which is one of the highest achievements of Impressionism in the transmission of light and atmospheric effects. Numerous drawings and engravings Pissarro have no equal among the works of the Impressionists. Pissarro died in Paris on November 13, 1903.
