Jacob Abraham Camille Pissarro was a Danish-French landscape artist best known for his influence on Impressionist and Postimpressionist painting.
Camille Pissarro was born in 1830 on the island of St Thomas, in the Danish West Indies (now in the US Virgin Islands). Relocating to Paris as a young man, Pissarro began experimenting with art, eventually helping to shape the Impressionist movement with friends including Claude Monet and Edgar Degas. Pissarro was also active in Postimpressionist circles, continuing to paint until his death in Paris on November 13, 1903.
