Camille Pissarro by Terence Maloon

Camille Pissarro (1830-1903) was the only member of the Impressionist group to exhibit in all eight of their exhibitions held in Paris between 1874 and 1886. He drafted the Impressionist convention and was the principal organizer of the first exhibition held in 1874. He was a bold and restless experimenter throughout his career, working in a variety of mediums and techniques, including painting, drawing, and printmaking. nbsp;Pissarro was also regarded as an astute judge of young talent. Czanne and Gauguin both acknowledged their profound debt to him, and Seurat, Signac and Matisse also benefited from Pissarros generous encouragement and advice at the start of their careers. This beautiful book is the first to examine closely Pissarros innovative role in the Impressionist movement and his novel approach to pictorial composition. With 150 stunning color illustrations of many of Pissarros greatest works, this comprehensive and accessible book includes five essays written by distinguished scholars that analyze the artists exploration of composition and subject matter, his experiments with color and space, and his turn to Neo-Impressionism toward the end of his career.Camille Pissarroalso describes his relationships to other contemporary artists, his reception by critics at the time, and his significant influence upon Impressionism and modern art.
