Artwork Biography

View full artist profile

Ludovic-Rodo was one Camille Pissarro's sons, and was first taught by his father and his associates. He settled in Montmartre with his brother Georges from 1898. He visited England in 1906, and lived there from 1914 until 1919, working as a wood engraver. On returning to Paris he founded the Monarro group (a contraction of Monet and Pissarro) with his brothers Lucien and Manzana, of which Monet was the honorary president. He wrote the catalogue raisonné of his father's work over a period of 20 years without interrupting his own work.

He showed a talent for drawing and caricature. He lived in Montmartre and painted the kind of café and theatre scenes, and pastel portraits of women favoured by Toulouse-Lautrec. He also painted typical landscapes of Paris and the surrounding area, the quays on the Seine and the banks of the Marne. During his stay in London he painted busy watercolour scenes of London and the suburbs. He liked to introduce figures into his landscape compositions, which were often of the Normandy countryside and also of the south of France. His works reveal a trace of his father's sensitivity, particularly in his watercolours, as he had an ability to capture the intangible atmosphere and the fluidity of reflections on water.

He was a regular exhibitor at the Salon des Indépendants in Paris, and put on regular solo exhibitions of his work in galleries in Paris and London-
