Fabulous horse artists – Orovida Pissarro 1893-1968

One of my customers told me about this artist, known in her lifetime as Orovida.  She was the grand daughter of French impressionist and neo-impressionist painter, Camille Pissarro (1830-1903) but she was a British artist who lived and worked in London  She turned her back on the current fashions and techniques in Western art (which she thought was too similar to photography) and instead was influenced by Asian art.  I love these etchings which incorporate the horses in an overall composition and a decorative style.  I love to see horses in art of a different tradition and culture.
