Lucien Pissarro, 1863-1944 (French-born British artist)

* Lucien Pissarro - noted for his landscape paintings of the French and English countrysides - had earthy Saturn in artistic Libra in quincunx aspect with his Pisces Sun, ruler of his Leo MC. A very creative astrological combination, not to mention Pluto in rural Taurus ruling his Ascendant and squaring his MC.


Lucien Pissarro (20 February 1863 – 10 July 1944) was a landscape painter, printmaker, wood engraver and designer and printer of fine books. His landscape paintings employ techniques of Impressionism and Neo-Impressionism, but he also exhibited with Les XX. Apart from his landscapes he painted a few still lifes and family portraits. Until 1890 he worked in France, but thereafter was based in Britain.

He was the oldest of seven children of the Impressionist painter Camille Pissarro and his wife Julie Vellay Pissarro (see her chart).

In 1916, Lucien Pissarro became a British citizen. While in Britain he was one of the founders of the Camden Town Group of artists. From 1922 to 1937 he painted regularly in the south of France, interspersed with painting expeditions to Derbyshire, south Wales and Essex. From 1934 to 1944 he exhibited at the Royal Academy in London. He died in Hewood, Somerset.
