Pissarro: Portrait of a Revolutionary

Title:
Camille Pissarro: The Studio of Modernism

Author:
Christophe Duvivier & Josef Helfenstein

Publisher:
Prestel

Illustrated by beautiful reproductions of Pissarro’s work, this new consideration focuses on his role in the revolutionary Impressionist movement of the 1870s and his strengths as a unifier and champion of other painters. As one of the founding figures of Impressionism, Pissarro exerted considerable influence over the movement’s other members, such as Paul Cézanne, Claude Monet, Paul Gauguin, Edgar Degas, Mary Cassatt, Alfred Sisley, Georges Seurat and Paul Signac. This book focuses on his collaborations with these and other artists, while celebrating the avant-garde quality of his painting.
