True but he was born in italy as well, it would only count if he was born in France and his parents were from Italy.

But of course, your collection, you call the shots - "This is a collection of artists who have parents (or a parent) who are immigrants (who is an immigrant)".
Still, his parents were immigrants, he arrived as a minor and started his career in France. Nobody mentioned in the definition that the artist has to be born in the country he started his career in (and think of the shock to some French :-).
Btw: with this definition it seems to me that Sandor Petofi's parents were not immigrants, just moved to another province of the same country (at that time) and all artists from French Islands at the Atlantic Ocean are French, belonging to a part of France "overseas"
