La Vere à Athis (Normandie)
(The Vere in Athis (Normandy))


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

Composed by French painter H. Claude Pissarro, this pastel offers an impressionistic perspective of a picturesque wooded riverbank in the Vere River valley in northern France. In the colorful reflections of the foliage in the sun-dappled water and the multi-hued vibrancy of the landscape, Pissarro’s Impressionist roots are clearly on display. Overall, this composition exemplifies the artist’s devotion to color, light, and form. 

The legacy of the Pissarro family - now in its fifth generation - is among the most long-lasting and impactful in the history of art. Apart from its famed progenitor, H. Claude Pissarro is perhaps the most highly lauded member of this artistic clan. Pissarro began painting at a young age, learning his craft from his father. He exhibited his first works at the young age of 14 and later studied in Paris. Like many of his family predecessors, the scope of his work and talent is vast, ranging from engraving to lithography, from publishing to painting. His reputation as a painter quickly spread, resulting in 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 impressionist works like the present piece.

This work is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity signed by the artist.
