Toulouse sous la neige
(Toulouse Under the Snow)

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

Brilliant white snow enlivens this wintertime landscape by the great French artist H. Claude Pissarro. Entitled Toulouse sous la neige, the work is part of a long tradition of winter landscapes in the history of Impressionist art, including similar scenes by H. Claude's great-grandfather, Camille Pissarro. H. Claude skillfully carries on this tradition. He triumphs in his depiction of the play of light over snow and the crisp atmosphere of the winter air, and this example clearly demonstrates the artist's acute eye for color, light and atmosphere. 

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 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 Post-Impressionistic works such as the present piece.

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