Camille Pissarro: Impressions of City and Country
UNITED STATES
NEW YORK  •  The Jewish Museum  •  Ongoing
 
Camille Pissarro (1830-1903) was one of the preeminent French Impressionists and the only artist who showed his work in all eight of the Impressionist exhibitions (1874-1886). This exhibition brings together nearly 50 paintings and works on paper in New York area public and private collections that explore the motifs Pissarro found in the rural and urban locales where he traveled and lived. Growing up in the Caribbean in a Sephardic Jewish family, Pissarro later became interested in anarchism and the plight of the poor. This exhibition examines the social ideologies and aesthetic theories that concerned Pissarro during his long career, through themes such as work and leisure, retreat from city life, and transitions in time and place, as seen in his Impressionist and Neo-Impressionist works.
