La Marne, Quai de La Gourdine


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

A man luxuriates in the afternoon sun as he sits beside his boat on the banks of the Marne river in this picturesque vista of the French countryside. Hugues Claude Pissarro renders his idyllic scene in exquisite detail, utilizing a plethora of painterly brushstrokes to create the windswept tall grasses, verdant trees and reflective blue water. Sun-kissed chateaus dot the countryside along the river's winding route, with tall mountains rising in the distance. The beautiful scene epitomizes Pissarro's expressive approach to painting and his artistic desire to capture the beauty of nature and the spirit of France.

Hailing from a long lineage of artists, including Impressionist Camille Pissarro, 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 and energetic pastel compositions. H. Claude Pissarro’s works have been exhibited and collected throughout the world, and they remain highly coveted for their intimate size and relatable subject matter.
