camille pissaro

PissaroThis famous impressionist painter was born in the West Indies in 1830.

He was a friend of Piette and often visited him at Montfoucault, where they sought inspiration and painted together.

In 1870, at the outbreak of the Franco-Prussian war, he and his family left to stay at Montfoucault and his second daughter was born there.

Unfortunately, she died after just a month and a half and he was compelled to leave quickly for London.

Later he resumed his stays at Monfoucault until the death of his friend Piette in 1878. He was never to return
