Camille Pissarro was a Danish-French painter, born on the island of St Thomas. He contributed to the development of Impressionism and Post-Impressionism. Like his forerunners, he studied under Gustave Courbet and Camille Corot. This French painter, who died at age 56, painted a wide range of subjects and genres. In addition, his work embodies the spirit of the time, and his work can be found in the National Gallery in Washington, D.C.

In 1855, Pissarro returned to Paris to study painting. He worked as an assistant to Anton Melbye, while studying the work of other artists. Artists such as Corot, Jean-Francois Millet, and Charles-François Daubigny inspired him and encouraged him to try new techniques. He also attended classes taught by the art masters, but he found their teaching styles to be stifling. As a result, he sought out alternative instruction from Corot.

Camille Pissarro never studied art at a formal art school, but he did frequent Academie Suisse, which Charles Suisse founded in 1855. He met Paul Cezanne, Claude Monet, and Armand Guillaumin while studying at the academy. His work is displayed at the National Gallery in London, the Musee d'Orsay in Paris, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
