Pissaro's People at The Legion of Honour

The Legion of Honour has a exhibit of Pissaro's People. Ending January 22, 2012, the exhibit is very nice.

Camille Pissaro was born on July 10, 1830 and died on November 13, 1903. He died of blood poisoning. He had many children who he loved to draw. He believed that all men and women were created equal so it did not matter who he was drawing, his wife, his maid, his child, or a slave. He drew all of them. He has a nice picture with a maidgiving a drink to his wife. You can not see his wife but you can see the maid and the bench on which his wife is supposedly sitting on.
