Félix Pissarro (24 July 1874 – 29 November 1897), born in Pontoise, Paris, in the year of the first Impressionist exhibition, was a nineteenth-century French painter, etcher and caricaturist. Under the adopted pseudonym of Jean Roch, also known as Titi in his family circle, he was the third son of the painter Camille and Julie Pissarro.
Félix's works very early demonstrated great strength and originality. His father regarded him as the most promising of his sons but before he was able to realise his full potential, he contracted tuberculosis and died in a sanatorium at 262 Kew Road, Kew (which is now in the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames), at the age of 23. He is buried in Richmond Cemetery.
