Ludovic Rodo Pissarro (1878-1952)

Ludovic-Rodolphe Pissarro, Camille Pissarro’s fourth son, was named after Camille’s close friend, the painter Ludovic Piette. He soon came to be known as Rodo, and exhibited under the name Ludovic-Rodo. Rodo studied with his father, and was also greatly influenced by many of the other great Impressionist painters who were his father’s friends. All of Pissarro’s five sons grew up to be painters, and all were drawn to the same Norman landscapes that their father often painted, but, as he matured as a painter, Rodo aligned himself more closely to artists like Toulouse Lautrec and Raoul Dufy. Like them, he was fascinated by the cabarets, nightclubs, music halls, and theaters of Paris, and found in them compelling subjects for his paintings.

Ludovic-Rodo often exhibited in the Salon des Indépendants exhibitions, including the Fauve exhibition in 1905. Like his older brother, Lucien, he spent a considerable amount of time in London, and painted many English scenes.

Ludovic-Rodo also spent twenty years compiling a catalogue raisonné of Camille’s work.Published in 1939, it remains today the standard reference work on his father’s oeuvre.
