Wikipedia: Camille Pissarro was born in Saint-Thomas, Virgin Islands, on July 10, 1830 to a Jewish French father (Abraham) of Portuguese origin, who had settled in this Danish colony of the West Indies a few years earlier, and to a creole mother named Rachel Manzano-Pomie native of Danish Antilles; His father sent him to Paris, France from 1842 to 1847 to receive his early education at a boarding school in Passy, a small village near Paris; As early as that time, he spends his free time sketching the countryside and visiting Parisian museums; On return to Saint-Thomas, he forms a friendship with Danish painter Fritz Melbye, with whom he flees in 1852 to Caracas , Venezuela where he will stay two years, so as to avoid working in his father's business; In 1855 his father ends up yielding to his will to become a painter and sends him again to Paris, where the French branch of his family was going to give him financial support, in order to have him follow a more serious training; Russia St Petersburg Hermitage museum UNESCO World Heritage.

Mon cerveau doit ramollir avec l'âge! Quand tu parles de mon 'salon', c'est des grands boulevards que tu parles? Encombrés ils le sont toujours autant mais avec moins de crottin de cheval!!! Merci Régis!

Merci Régis pour cette explication, mon petit musée personnel est trop exigu pour accueillir ces "babioles"!!!
