The Impressionist and the City: Pissarro´s Series Paintings
March 7, 1993 - June 6, 1993
Impressionist painter Camille Pissarro (1830-1903) produced more than 300 views of Paris and the ports of Normandy, often painting several versions of a scene from the same spot in varying light and weather. For the first time since the artist's death, this exhibition assembles his finest paintings of turn-of-the-century French urban life and explores his particular vision in creating series of favorite subjects. The Philadelphia Museum of Art will be the only East Coast venue for this extraordinary group of more than 70 works from collections throughout the world.
