Artist biography

View full artist profile

Paulémile Pissarro was the son of Camille Pissarro, by whom he was taught and whose example he followed in his choice of rural scenes and landscapes across Normandy and the Île de France. When his father died in 1903, Paulémile gave up painting and earned his living as a car mechanic, although this proved to be a temporary expedient. After seeking advice from Claude Monet, he decided to take up painting again. He exhibited at the Salon des Indépendants, Salon d'Automne and Salon des Tuileries in Paris.
