Artist biography Lélia Pissarro was born in Paris on the 27th July 1963, the third and youngest child of the artist Hugues-Claude Pissarro and Katia, an art-dealer. From infancy until the age of eleven she was entrusted to the care of her grandparents, Paulémile Pissarro and his wife Yvonne, and her interest in drawing and painting was nurtured by Paulémile whilst living in Clécy, Normandy. Paulémile taught her the fundamental impressionist and post-impressionist techniques as had been taught to him by his father and his brothers, and so began her love for figurative art. She sold her first canvas to Wally Findlay, a New York art dealer, when she was only 4 years of age! Before his death, Paulémile made Lélia promise to retain her family name, to continue painting and to make art her life. At the age of 11 Lélia returned to Paris to live with her parents and it was then that she had her first exhibition at the "Salon de la Jeune Peinture" where she was, in all probability, the youngest ever exhibitor. Hugues-Claude, whose style veered towards conceptual art, took over from Paulémile as Lelia’s teacher and consequently she practiced drawing on a daily basis. At 15 she participated in an exhibition at the Luxembourg Museum in Paris and a year later, having excelled in a special examination, enrolled at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Tours. With her parents dividing their time between France and California, Lélia found herself moving between Tours, Paris and San Francisco. During this period she became dissatisfied with conceptual art and reverted to the family's traditional creative roots which distanced her from her avant-garde teachers. However, during the late 1980’s as the figurative style once again became fashionable, Lélia’s work found itself gaining in popularity. Whilst in Paris, Lélia taught art at the Moria School and studied oil painting restoration under Madame De Pangalleria at the laboratory of the Louvre and during this time had solo exhibitions in Paris, Lyon, Mulhouse and Rennes. Following her marriage in 1988 to David Stern, the London art dealer, she moved to London where her studio has become a meeting place for artists and friends and where conversation and tuition generate an exchange of opinions on drawings, pastels, watercolours, oil paintings and engravings. In 1999 Lélia became one of the founders of the “Sorteval Press”, a group of artists dedicated to developing their skills and techniques in etching and printmaking. Their first exhibition took place during December at the Mall Gallery in London and the artist’s efforts ensured a highly successful first exhibition. Balancing her role as artist and mother to three children, Lélia has successfully exhibited not only in London but also in Japan, South Africa, France Switzerland and Israel. In the United States Lélia's work has been shown in New York, Boston, Washington DC, Dallas, San Francisco and Los Angeles. Following the tradition of her great-grandfather Camille Pissarro, her grand-father Paulémile and her father Hugues-Claude, this fourth generation artist has played an important role by participating in the recent series of exhibitions entitled Pissarro – The Four Generations. In 1998 Japan hosted the most recent of these, with a touring exhibition to five major museums.
