Christine Rendel brings her delightful British voice to this biography of the artist Camille Pissarro (1830-1903). Known as "the father of Impressionism," Pissarro was born into a Jewish family on St. Thomas but settled in Paris for his career. While associating closely with the innovative painters of the time, including Monet, Degas, Cassatt, and Cézanne, Pissarro remained an original thinker who inspired the others. Rendel's charming delivery and dramatic expression for various characters keeps the narrative fresh and interesting. Her steady pacing is well suited to the artist himself, who led a remarkably drama-free life as a family man who worked diligently to sell his work. Listeners will enjoy the interactions among the artists and everyday scenes of life in Paris during La Belle poque. J.E.S. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2023]
