Camille Pissarro (1830–1903) is one of the most celebrated artists of 19th-century France and a central figure in Impressionism. Considered a father-figure to many in the movement, his work was enormously influential for many artists, including Claude Monet and Paul Cézanne. Camille Pissarro is considered one of the most sincere and authentic of all the Impressionists and was the subject of a sell-out exhibition at the Ashmolean in 2022.
