Happy B-day Pissarro

Happy Birthday Camille Pissarro, the tamest of anarchists. Actually, his birthday was yesterday, but since he shares it with Proust, I bumped him. That’s anarchy for you.

He was the guy who put Louveciennes on the map. What? You don’t know Louveciennes? Well, it’s a nice town, but nothing much goes on there. Nothing much to paint there, either, which suited Pissarro, because he didn’t want to paint what other people painted. He didn’t want to paint what other people wanted either, creating pieces with exciting titles like ‘street in a village.’ Doesn’t that make you want to go out right now and look for it? If so, you can find a reproduction in Louveciennes, on rue de Voisins. I just like saying the name Louveciennes over and over, and thinking how it literally means ‘your wolves,’ female wolves, wolvettes. Pissarro is also fun to say. Try it.

I’ll guide you to his final resting place on MyVoiceMap audio tours of the Père Lachaise cemetery, and tell stories from his life.


See funny pics and text from our picnic together in The Chairfather book.

The passed have never been more alive!

Book a lunch date with the fallen famous NOW!

Or later…

Really, it doesn’t matter. Their agendas are quite open.
