Paul-Emile Pissarro was born in Eragny, France in 1884. Paulemile - which is how he preferred to spell his name - was the fifth and youngest son of Camille Pissarro. Following his father's death Paulemile returned from Paris with his mother to Eragny, which was only about 20 miles away from Giverny where his father's good friend Monet lived. Paulemile would travel to Giverny where Monet gave him lessons in painting and horticulture. Paul-Emile Pissarro studied with his father and Monet for many years and was exhilarated by the fleeting effects and sought subjects reflectios in grass fields, orchards, water, snow, seasonal rythems of country life and like his father shows us his love of "Barbizons" landscapes.
