Dear all

In his long discussion Mr. Cherson writes that Camille Pissaro was of Danish-French descent. Wrong! Jacob Abraham Camille Pissarro was born Jewish, to a father of Portuguese marrano extraction who was an active member of the little Jewish community of the island and to a local Jewish mother. He came in conflict with the Jewish community because he married the widow of his uncle which for the strict orthodox then and now is utterly forbidden. This has of course nothing to do with the judicial Cassirer issue. But to the many solutions suggested by Mr. Cherson I would add, why not donating the Pissaro to the Israel's Museum in Jerusalem?
