Ideas of purification and spirituality—Giverny deep water

Signed “Lélia Pissarro” (lower left and en verso)
Oil on canvas

This vibrant and lush reimagining of Monet’s garden in Giverny, France, follows the rich tradition of Impressionist landscapes. The gardens, which encompass the former home of the iconic Impressionist artist, are where he crafted his renowned water lily series. Known for the vigor and vivacity of her brushwork, Lélia Pissarro captures the tranquility of the scene with a more saturated palette of vivid colors. Her intuitive understanding of light and color infuses the composition with energy and vitality.

In this painting, the lush canopy of a willow tree meets the calm, lily-pad-dotted waters of a pond. Pissarro renders the water in bright blue and purple hues, showcasing her mastery of color. Bursting with a highly saturated palette and swift, painterly brushwork, this original composition reinvigorates the celebrated style of the Impressionists, paying homage to Pissarro’s own artistic legacy.

Born in Paris in 1963, Lélia is the fourth generation in a long line of famous painters, the youngest child of the artist H. Claude Pissarro and the great-granddaughter of the famed Camille Pissarro. 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. Working today from her London studio located by Richmond Park and the river Thames, Pissarro upholds the legacy of painting en plein air while simultaneously continuing to explore modern techniques.
