Why We Love This

This work is signed at the lower right "Lélia Pissarro," titled and signed again verso.

Lélia Pissarro was born in Paris on July 27, 1963, the third and youngest child of Hugues Claude Pissarro and Katia, an art-dealer. From her infancy until the age of eleven, she was entrusted to the care of her grandparents, Paulémile Pissarro and his wife Yvonne, and her interest in drawing and painting was nurtured during these years while living at Clécy in Normandy. Paulémile taught her the fundamental Impressionist and Post-Impressionist techniques that had been taught to him by his father and his brothers, and so began her love for figurative art. She sold her first canvas to a New York gallery when she was only four years of age. Before his death in 1972, Paulémile made her promise to retain her family name, to continue painting, and to make art her life.

At the age of eleven Lélia returned to Paris to live with her parents, and it was then that she had her first exhibitions at the Salon de la Jeune Peinture, where she was, in all probability, the youngest ever exhibitor. Hugues Claude, whose style veered towards conceptual art, took over for Paulémile as Lelia's teacher, and consequently she practiced drawing on a daily basis. At fifteen she took part in an exhibition at the Luxembourg Museum in Paris, and a year later, having excelled in a special examination, enrolled at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Tours. With her parents dividing their time between France and California, Lélia found herself moving between Tours, Paris and San Francisco. During this period she became dissatisfied with conceptual art and reverted to the family's traditional creative roots, which distanced her from her avant-garde teachers. While in Paris, Lélia taught art at the Moria School and studied oil painting restoration under Mme De Pangalleria at the Louvre's laboratory. During this time she has had solo exhibitions in Paris, Lyon, Mulhouse and Rennes.

Following in the tradition of her great-grandfather, Camille Pissarro, her grandfather, Paulémile, and her father, Hugues Claude, this fourth-generation artist has been included in a series of museum exhibitions exploring the work of Camille Pissarro and his descendants.
