Le Dôme, Montparnasse, Paris XIVe

Signed “H. Claude Pissarro” (lower right)
Oil on canvas

A street side view of the famed Café du Dôme is the subject of this colorful oil on canvas by the French painter H. Claude Pissarro. The influence of his grandfather, the legendary Impressionist Camille Pissarro, is keenly felt in his vibrant palette and distinctive brushwork. Entitled Le Dôme, Montparnasse, Paris XIVe, the oil is imbued with the colorful hues, rich textures and light-filled brilliance that exemplifies Pissarro's artistic output. With his genius eye for composition, Pissarro finds color in the most unexpected of places, from the cobblestone streets to the building facades that stretch into the distance. Heavily influenced by the Impressionists, Pissarro sacrifices detail in favor of atmosphere, an aesthetic effect that truly brings the vibrancy of this scene to life.

Raised in a prolific artistic environment, Pissarro was an avid student of both his father, French painter Paul-Emile Pissarro, and his grandfather, Camille. He exhibited his first works at the young age of 14 and later studied in Paris at the École du Musée du Louvre and École Normale Supérieur. Like many of his family predecessors, the scope of his work and talent is vast, ranging from engraving to lithography and publishing to painting. His reputation as an artist led to a White House commission in 1959 to paint the portrait of President Eisenhower. 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.
