ART OF THE FIRST WORLD WAR - 1914 -1918
#4288: Richmond Park. A soldier and girl lying under…
LUDOVIC-RODOLPHE (RODO) PISSARRO (1878-1952). Ludovic-Rodolphe Pissarro was born in Paris on the 21st November 1878 and was Camille Pissarro’s fourth son. He soon became known as Rodo and usually signed his work Ludovic-Rodo. Rodo is perhaps most remembered today by art historians for undertaking the cataloguing of his father’s work, a project which took him more than twenty years. We, however, must thank him for giving us this wonderful collection of images which are evocative, witty and utterly enchanting. You will see that they are all small snapshots of the life and people on the Home Front that Rodo saw in and around London during the First World War
