Comment on this story on the

Lucien Pissarro lived in Bedford Park from 1897 until his death. He was a prominent member of the Arts and Crafts community in the suburb. This connection is the subject of this year's Bedford Park Society Annual Betjeman Lecture, The Pissarros in Bedford Park, 1897 1944 which will take place on Wednesday 13 June, 7.30pm at the Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation Theatre, Arts Educational Schools, 14 Bath Road, W4 1LY.

This fascinating talk will explore his role in the private press movement and his work promoting the principles of French Impressionism inherited from his father Camille.

Colin Harrison is the Senior Curator of European Art in the Ashmolean Museum at the University of Oxford. His curatorial responsibilities and research interests include French art from 1800 to 1945, extending to the large collections of the Pissarro family, portrait miniatures and musical instruments.
