EOS: PISSARRO FATHER
OF IMPRESSIONISM (NR)

90 minutes

Directed by David Bickerstaff

Born in the West Indies, Camille Pissarro found his passion in paint as a young man in Paris, and by the age of 43 had corralled a group of enthusiastic artists into a new collective. Their first show was scorned by the critics, but the group had acquired a new name: the Impressionists. For the next 40 years Pissarro was the driving force behind what has today become the world’s favorite artistic movement. He became a father figure to many in the movement, including Monet and Cezanne. The film reveals Pissarro’s life and work through a series of intimate and revealing letters that he wrote to his family. This gripping film draws largely on the first major Pissarro retrospective in four decades at The Ashmolean, Oxford, and the remarkable Pissarro archive housed at the museum.
