Landscape: Cézanne, Lawson, Matisse, Pissarro, Renoir

Instructor: Michael Rossman, MFA

Camille Pissarro advised that “one must have only one master–nature.” This inspired Renoir and Cézanne’s generation of artists, whose work, in turn, inspired Matisse; through his radical innovations, Matisse influenced American painters like Fredrick Lawson. The strand connecting them was a vision of the landscape as a source of inspiration, a place for reflection, and an artistic challenge requiring serious study. Discover how depiction of landscape connects artistic practice from the 19th to 20th centuries, and from Europe to America.
