Notes: HUGHES CLAUDE PISSARRO is the grandson of the Impressionist painter Camille Pissarro and son of artist Paulemile Pissarro. Born in Neuilly-sur-Seine in 1935, steeped in this artistic environment, he inevitably spent his childhood with brushes in his hand. His father frequently took his sons on painting excursions which proved formative for Hughes Claude. His formal art training was at the prestigious Ecole du Musee du Louvre and the Ecole Normale Superieure, a unique French institution dedicated to the pursuit of achievement and excellence to which only the academic elite have access. He was a professor of art for much of his professional life. Hugues work has evolved through a variety of different styles and techniques including abstract, avant garde, minimalist and conceptual art. However he is now perhaps best known for his Impressionist-style works, known collectively as Petit Claude, which have been exhibited throughout the world since 1985.
