Empedocles' Village


Signed "Lélia Pissarro" (lower right)
Signed and titled (en verso)
Oil on canvas

Following a long and rich tradition of Impressionist landscapes, French artist Lélia Pissarro painted this scene with a vibrancy and spontaneity reminiscent of the work of her great-grandfather, the legendary Impressionist Camille Pissarro. Depicting a quaint village house and lush green path dotted with purple blooms and beams of sunlight, this enchanting scene perfectly captures the calm of rural France on a bright spring day. Rendered with swift, confident brushstrokes in brilliant color, this composition is an extraordinary addition to the Pissarro family's artistic legacy.

The fourth generation in a long line of famous painters, Lélia seemed destined to pick up the paint brush. She was the third and youngest child of the artist H. Claude Pissarro, who is also a painter of great talent and renown. Naturally, Pissarro learned her craft at an early age, primarily studying under her grandfather, the artist Paulémile Pissarro. She sold her first painting to New York art dealer Wally Findlay at the age of just 4, and she exhibited her first work at age 11 at La Jeune Peinture in Paris. She would go on to exhibit in cities throughout France, as well as in Israel, New York, Switzerland, Boston and London.

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