Pissarro: Father of Impressionism

FATHER OF IMPRESSIONISM

Open 18 February – 12 June 2022

This major exhibition, of works drawn from the Ashmolean's collections as well as international loans, will span Pissarro's entire career.

Camille Pissarro (1830–1903) is one of the most celebrated artists of nineteenth-century France and a central figure in Impressionism. Considered a father-figure to many in the movement, his work was enormously influential for many artists, including Claude Monet and Paul Cézanne. It opens in spring 2022.
