Blanche Roboa, wife of Georges Manzana-Pissarro, the second son of Camille Pissarro.
Blanche Morizet was born on May 23, 1878 in Achères (Yvelines), at the home of her grandfather, Jean-Baptiste Roboam; her father, Jules Morizet, was employed in the central covered market of Paris. It is by taking the diminutive of her mother's family name that she created her artist's name with which she would sign her first works: ‘Roboa’ Attracted to painting at a very young age, she was noticed by a critic for Le Figaro who called her an ‘exquisite artist with a subtle and refined use of colour’.
Indeed a talented colourist, she expressed herself in pastels as well as in oil painting. While the former underline the softness of the faces, the padded atmosphere of the young women seized in moments of intimacy, the use of oil contrasts above all by its pronounced taste for the material in a "fauve" spirit.
