Hugues Claude Pissarro
b.1935 | French

Dimanche au Champ de Course (Deauville)
(Sunday at the Racetrack)

Signed “H. Claude Pissarro” (lower left)
Pastel on card

French artist Hugues Claude Pissarro offers a unique perspective of the racetrack in Deauville in this exceptional pastel painting. The spectators are as much his subject as the sport in this artistic tribute to a leisurely Sunday at the tracks. Following the impressionist tradition of his father and grandfather before him, Pissarro infuses this pastel with dynamic light and vibrant colors. Entitled Dimanche au Champ de Course (Deauville), it showcases the artist's highly distinctive and sophisticated style.

Hailing from a long lineage of painters, Pissarro's artistic talents were cultivated at an early age. He exhibited his first works at the young age of 14 and later studied in Paris at the École du Louvre and École Normale Supérieure. A 1959 White House commission to paint the portrait of President Eisenhower cemented his reputation as an artist of renown, and his work has since been featured in important exhibitions throughout Europe and the United States. While his style has evolved throughout his career, he is best known for his brightly colored works such as the present piece.

The painting is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity signed by the artist.
