PISSARRO AND THE CRISIS OF IMPRESSIONISM

An Exclusive Online & In-Person Talk for Members of the Ashmolean

In-person tickets include a private visit to the Pissarro exhibition, followed by drinks and nibbles in the Rooftop Restaurant from 5.45–6.30pm


With Colin Harrison, Senior Curator of European Art

By the fifth Impressionist exhibition, held in 1880, Camille Pissarro had begun to concentrate on the human figure in his paintings, and his brushstrokes became less fluid and more regular.

His meeting with the younger artists Georges Seurat and Paul Signac, in 1885, encouraged him to experiment with the ‘dot’ technique. Pissarro persevered with the technique until 1890, when he reverted to a more conventionally Impressionist style. This talk with Dr Colin Harrison, curator of the Museum's Pissarro exhibition, will explore this period of crisis.
