Overview

Pissarro: 155 Masterpieces by Ann Kannings

Camille Pissarro was French artist, the only painter to show in all eight of the Impressionist exhibitions between 1874 and 1886, and he is frequently considered as the "father" of the Impressionist movement. Throughout his life Pissarro remained as radical in artistic matters as he was in politics. The significance of Pissarro's work is in the sense of balance maintained between the conventional and the avant-garde.

He was even so a primary developer of Impressionist technique. Pissarro experimented with Neo-Impressionist ideas between 1885 and 1890. Discontented with what he referred to as "romantic Impressionism," he investigated Pointillism which he called "scientific Impressionism" before returning to a purer Impressionism in the last decade of his life.

During his lifetime, Camille Pissarro sold few of his paintings.
