Pissaro, H Claude
(French, Born 1935)

Hugues Claude Pissarro is a French painter, alternately known as Hugues Claude Pissarro, and professionally as Isaac Pomie.  He is the grandson of the Impressionist painter Camille Pissarro.  Born in Neuilly-sur-Seine in 1935, he spent his childhood with brushes in hand.  Carrying on a family tradition established by his grandfather, his father frequently took him on painting excursions.   He exhibited his work at age 14 and subsequently studied in Paris at the Ecole du Musee du Louvre and Ecole Normale Superieur, a unique French institution.

His work has been featured in exhibitions in Europe and the United States.  In 1956 he was commissioned by the White House to paint a portrait of U. S. President Dwight W. Eisenhower.  He is still active and lives in France and Ireland.
