Description

Born in St. Thomas, Jewish, and a decade older than his fellow Impressionists, the “humble and colossal Pissarro,” as Cézanne called him, was at once an outsider and a key member of the group. He was the only one to show in all eight exhibitions of the independent artists. This three-session class will look at ways in which the works of this artist reflected his distinctive socially-conscious vision as well as his experimentation with techniques. It will discuss his engagement with the political and artistic interests of the younger generation, when he joined with Seurat and other Neo-Impressionists, although in the end, he returned to his own version of Impressionism.  Register for this class if you will only be viewing via Zoom. You must have a computer/tablet/phone with audio and video capability.
