Lucien Pissarro was born in Paris as the eldest son of the Impressionist painter Camille Pissarro. His talent and interest in painting was furthered by his father’s art lessons and by his close association with his father’s friends and contemporaries, including Cézanne, Monet and Manet. While he began his career as a landscape painter, he quickly turned to woodcuts and wood engravings. In 1884, he exhibited in the first Salon des Indépendants as a Neo-Impressionist, and participated in the final Impressionist exhibition in 1886. The correspondence between Camille and Lucien Pissarro remains important to both the Impressionist and Neo-Impressionist movements.
