Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The catalog of an exhibition traveling to Dallas, Philadelphia, and London in 1992-93, this book considers approximately 150 paintings done by Pissarro (1830-1903) in the last decade of his life. These paintings are repeated meditations on various motifs in Paris, Rouen, Dieppe, and Le Havre. Brettell (director, Dallas Museum of Art) places Pissarro in the urban view-painting tradition, while Joachim Pissarro, a descendant of the artist, relates these pictures to the artist's development and attempts to understand his intent in painting series. Graced by beautiful plates, this book is appropriate for both lay readers and specialists.-- Jack Perry Brown, Art Inst. of Chicago Lib.
