Pissarro: The first Impressionist

19 November 05 – 19 February 06

Pissarro: the first Impressionist is the largest exhibition of a major Impressionist artist ever to be held in Australia. Comprising of more than 100 paintings and works on paper, it includes some of the artist’s most famous paintings.

Camille Pissarro (1830–1903) was one of the leading and most influential French Impressionists. An ambitious and innovative painter, he was the only artist to participate in all eight of the historical Impressionist exhibitions held in Paris between 1874 and 1886, and was the principal organiser of the first exhibition.

*sigh* _another_ impressionism exhibition. As if sydney hasn't seen enough of these already.
