Orovida Camille Pissarro (1893-1968, British)

Orovida Camille Pissarro, self portraitOrovida Camille Pissarro (1893-1968, British) daughter and granddaughter of the artists Lucien Pissarro and Camille Pissarro, did not follow their Post-Impressionist and Impressionist styles. Orovida Camille Pissarro declared her independence and, instead, was influenced by Chinese and Asiatic techniques. Pissarro showed her talent early, preferring to paint domestic cats, tigers and horses. A prolific printmaker, she produced approximately 8,000 prints from 107 etched plates.  Undoubtedly, she owned and preferred Siamese cats as many of her cat paintings feature this breed.
