Artist of the Month – January

By | All School News
January’s Artist of the Month is Camille Pissarro, sometimes known as the Dean of Impressionism. In his later life he stayed with his son, Lucien Pissarro, in Chiswick and painted views of the local area.
Some of his work can be viewed at the National Gallery on permanent exhibition.
Thank you for the excellent Bridget Riley pictures that some of your children painted at home. It would be great to receive some Camille Pissarro inspired pictures that we can display at school this month!
