Upcoming exhibition | Camille Pissarro: Works from the Gallery collection

CAMILLE PISSARRO

Works from the Gallery collection


October - November 2021 (dates tbc)

This fall, the gallery will be exhibiting the work of Impressionist artist Camille Pissarro (1830-1903). Featuring around forty artworks, all of which are available for sale, the show will bring together an all-embracing selection of the artist's periods and media, including oil paintings, pastels, gouaches, watercolours, drawings and prints. The diverse oeuvre in our gallery spans a large part of Pissarro's artistic career, starting from the 1850s with his early sketches in St Thomas and Venezuela, up until the later paintings and etchings realised in France through the 1880s and 1890s.

Identified as the 'unifying spirit' of the Impressionist group, Camille Pissarro (1830 - 1903) was a man of great character who not only influenced his own generation of fellow artists, including Paul Gauguin and Paul Cézanne, but who also helped shaping the concept of art as we know it nowadays. This exhibition aims to celebrate the artist's individual vision and creative eclecticism by putting on display a series of drawings, paintings, and etchings from our gallery collection.

The gallery's show coincides with an international series of exhibitions that are drawing special attention to the work of Pissarro. For the first time after sixty years in Switzerland, a solo exhibition has been dedicated to Pissarro at the Kunst Museum in Basel. Running from September to January, 'Camille Pissarro: The Studio of Modernism' celebrates the career of such an eminent artist, whose painting Un coin de l’Hermitage, Pontoise (1878) was the first Impressionist painting to enter the public art collection of Basel in 1912. Starting from February 2022, the exhibition will travel to the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford, renowned for housing the largest collection of works by Pissarro in the world.
