Overview

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.  Pissarro was also regarded as an astute judge of young talent. Cézanne and Gauguin both acknowledged their profound debt to him, and Seurat, Signac and Matisse also benefited from Pissarro's generous encouragement and advice at the start of their careers.


This beautiful book is the first to examine closely Pissarro’s innovative role in the Impressionist movement and his novel approach to pictorial composition. With 150 stunning color illustrations of many of Pissarro’s greatest works, this comprehensive and accessible book includes five essays written by distinguished scholars that analyze the artist’s 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 Pissarro also describes his relationships to other contemporary artists, his reception by critics at the time, and his significant influence upon Impressionism and modern art.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This well-conceived and handsome catalog accompanies curator Maloon's blockbuster exhibit Camille Pissarro: The First Impressionist, showing through May 28 at the National Gallery of Victoria in Melbourne, Australia. Maloon and four other qualified scholars, including Joachim Pissarro (curator, painting & sculpture, Museum of Modern Art, New York), great-grandson of the artist, systematically render Pissarro (1830-1903) not only a talented and prolific impressionist master but also an experimenter and innovator, a teacher and mentor, and-very important-a gracious and kind man. The catalog includes engrossing, erudite essays; high-quality color plates; a map of "Pissarro country"; a checklist of works; and a revealing and sometimes humorous section titled "Pissarro and His Critics." The (popular) fact that Pissarro was a unifying figure of the impressionist movement and a notable landscape painter is undeniably illustrated here. Maloon and associates also shed light on a less well known yet equally captivating Pissarro: a portraitist, a painter of city scenes and crowds, and a painter of intimate interiors. Highly recommended for public, academic, and special libraries with an art and art history focus.-Jennifer H Krivickas, Yale Ctr. for British Art Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
