Grand'Mère (la femme de l'artiste).

Lithograph printed in black on smooth cream wove paper, circa 1895. 150x112 mm; 6x4 1/2 inches, full margins. One of approximately only 10 known impressions of this subject. Signed, titled and inscribed "no. 2" in pencil, lower margin. A very good impression of this extremely scarce lithograph.

The remarqué below the portrait of Pissarro's wife, Julie (1838-1926), portrays the artist's daughter Jeanne. Pissarro married Julie Vellay, who was the daughter of his mother's maid, in 1871; he has shown her here as a grandmother in her late 50s. Jeanne was the couples' sixth of seven children. Delteil 143.
