Biography from Odon Wagner Gallery:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Hughes Claude Pissarro is the grandson of the Impressionist painter Camille Pissarro and son of Paulemile Pissarro.  Born in Neuilly-sur-Seine and enveloped in an artistic environment, he inevitably spent his childhood and youth with brushes in hand.  Carrying on a family tradition established by Camille Pissarro, his father frequently took Hugues on painting excursions, accompanied by his numerous artist friends, and these proved formative for him.

Initially taught by his father, Hughes first exhibited his work at the age of fourteen.  He subsequently studied art in Paris at prestigious establishments such as Ecole du Musée du Louvre and, in particular, at Ecole Normale Supérieur, a unique French institution dedicated to the pursuit of achievement and excellence to which only the academic elite have access.  It was inevitable that this educational background would lead him to become a professor of art for much of his professional life and in 1965 he accepted an official invitation to teach art in Monaco.

Throughout his teaching career he was also a prolific artist exhibiting on several occasions in Paris and London, and like many of his family predecessors, the scope of his work and talent is wide ranging; from engraver, lithographer, publisher and landscape painter to portraitist.  He was commissioned by the White House in 1959 to paint President Eisenhower.

Hughes’ work has evolved through a variety of different styles and techniques – including abstract, avant garde, minimalist and conceptual art.  However he is now perhaps best known for his Impressionist-style works, known collectively as “Petit Claude”, which have been exhibited throughout the world since 1985.

Biography from Simic Galleries:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

H. Claude Pissarro, grandson of the 19th century French impressionist Camille Pissarro, is the third generation standard bearer of the Pissarro line of painters.

Camille Pissarro was recognized not only for his artistic talent, but for his innate teaching abilities as well.  Among his many pupils were his own five sons and Paul Cezanne.  Lucien and Paulemile Pissarro, H. Claude’s uncle and father, both became important figures in the post-impressionist school of painting.

H. Claude Pissarro was born in 1935 in the fashionable western section of Paris, Neuilly-sur-Seine, and began to draw and paint as a young child under his father’s tutelage.  During his adolescence and early twenties he studied the works of the great masters at the Musee du Louvre and the Musee du Jeu de Paume under the supervision of his father and uncles.  Guided by their skill and knowledge, young Pissarro gradually developed and refined his own style and technique.

Now, after more than four decades, it has become obvious that Claude Pissarro has not only accepted the challenge that his forefathers legacy presents, but has also become a painter in his own right.

He currently resides in France’s Normandy region, and devotes his time to painting in oil or pastel his French homeland; landscapes, scenes of country life and harbor settings.
