LUCIEN PISSARRO (French/British / 1863-1944)

Lucien Pissarro was the son of the great Impressionist Camille Pissarro. Lucien did not attend art school, but instead learned alongside his father; his own art remained strongly linked to that of the Impressionists and neo-Impressionists. As a printmaker, Lucien Pissarro benefited from the instruction of his father's friend Auguste Lepère. Although Lucien Pissarro made 20 etchings and 20 lithographs, much his preferred printmaking method was wood engraving. Lucien Pissarro settled in England in 1893, and was naturalized in 1916. In England he became friendly with Ricketts, Shannon, Walter Crane and William Morris.
