(Based on the Ashmolean Museum Exhibition opening in February 2022) Camille Pissarro (1830–1903) is one of the most celebrated artists of C19th France and a central figure in Impressionism. His work was enormously influential for many artists, including Monet and Cézanne. This major exhibition, of works drawn from the Ashmolean's collections as well as international loans, will span Pissarro's entire career.

 

We will look at some of Pissaro’s lesser-known works that evolved through Corot’s influence, a London period from 1870-71, Impressionism, Neo-Impressionism and on to his later work, mostly painted from Hotel windows.
