About the Class

A leading figure in the impressionist and neo-impressionist movements, Camille Pissarro continually pushed the boundaries of his practice by experimenting with new techniques and ideas. Not only was he a gifted painter, but he also had that rare gift of generosity, always sharing with other artists what he was discovering. Pissarro was a major influence on Monet, Cézanne, Gauguin, and Van Gogh, and he worked closely with Degas and Cassatt. We will explore these artistic relationships with the goal of understanding more about the evolution of modern art in the late 19th century.

Capacity: 18

Note: This class is also offered in November.
