LIONESS IS MORE

Artist: Lelia Pissarro

Lelia Pissarro was born in Paris, the youngest child of artist Hugues-Claude Pissarro and Katia, an art dealer. She learned art from her grandfather and her father, before studying at the world's best art schools.

Lelia sold her first canvas to a New York art dealer when she was just four years of age. At fifteen, Lelia exhibited at the Luxembourg Museum in Paris and a year later enrolled at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Tours. Whilst in Paris, she taught art at the Moria School and studied oil painting restoration at the laboratory of the Louvre. Lelia had solo exhibitions in Paris, Lyon, Mulhouse and Rennes and in 1988, she married art dealer David Stern and moved to London.

Lelia's work has been regularly exhibited in galleries around the world. Continuing the tradition of her great-grandfather Camille Pissarro, her grandfather Paul-Ã?mile Pissarro and her father Hugues-Claude Pissarro, Lelia has participated in a series of exhibitions entitled 'Pissarro - The Four Generations' in London, Tel Aviv, Japan and Florida.

In 1999, Lelia became one of the founders of the Sorteval Press, a group of artists dedicated to developing their skills and techniques in etching and printmaking. Their first exhibition took place at the Mall Gallery in London.

Lelia painted her lion, 'Lioness is More', in oils. The design is based on her watercolour camouflage series, which is a reflection on her personal beliefs that the natural world is fundamental to the creative process. In recreating these luxuriant jungle landscapes on her lion, Lelia hopes to offer the viewer a moment to pause, reflect and rejuvenate.
