Portrait of Rodo Reading (1893). Camille Pissarro (Danish-French, Impressionism, 1830-1903). Oil on canvas.
In 1871, Pissarro married Julie Vellay, with whom he would have seven children. Rodo was the fourth son. They lived outside of Paris, where Pissarro painted scenes of village life and the natural world. Like many of his contemporaries, he preferred to work in the open air rather than the studio.
