Camille Pissarro, « the first impressionist », at Musée Marmottan Monet in Paris

From February 23, 2017 to July 02, 2017
Camille Pissarro, « the first impressionist », at Musée Marmottan Monet in Paris 2, rue Louis-Boilly 75016 paris fr

From February 23rd untill July 2nd 2017 the Musée Marmottan Monet presents the first comprehensive exhibition of Camille Pissarro in Paris for over 40 years.

The exhibition includes 60 of the most magnificent masterpieces, all selected with great care, and of these eight have never been exhibited in France. The Paintings come from major museums in France and abroad as well as from prestigious private exhibitions.

This unique collection sums up the artist's career from her early work in the Danish West Indies to the major urban series from Paris, Rouen and Le Havre and paint a different and unknown picture of Camille Pissarro. She is known as 'the first impressionist' and supporter of the painting style of pointillism, but she continued to innovate throughout life and has painted everything from landscapes, portraits, towns and the sea.

The exhibition at Musée Marmottan Monet shows the unique diversity of a proud and poetic art with both humanistic and revolutionary dimensions.
