Camille Pissarro (July 10 1830November 1903) was a French impressionist painter.

Camille Pissarro was born in Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas to Abraham Gabriel Pissarro, a Sephardic Jew from France, and Rachel Manzano-Pomi, from the Dominican Republic. Pissarro lived in St. Thomas until age 12, when he went to a boarding school in Paris. He returned to St. Thomas where he drew in his free time drawing. In 1852, he traveled to Venezuela with the Danish artist Fritz Melbye. In 1855, he moved to Paris, where he studied with the French landscape artist Jean-Baptiste Camille Corot.

Known as the Father of Impressionism, he painted rural French life, particularly landscapes and workers in the fields as well as scenes from Montmartre. He then went to Paris to teach, where some of his students were Paul Cezanne and Paul Gauguin.

In March 1893, Paris Gallery Durand-Ruel organised a major exhibition of 46 of Pissarro's works along 55 others by Antonio de La Gandara. But while the critics acclaimed Gandara, their appraisal of Pissarro's art was less enthusiastic.

He died in ragny-sur-Epte on either November 12 or November 13, 1903 and was buried in Pre Lachaise Cemetery in Paris.

During his lifetime, Camille Pissarro sold few of his paintings. Before 2005, Pissarro paintings have sold for around $4 million.
