Pissarro

This critical catalogue of the paintings of Camille PISSARRO (1830-1903) took as its point of departure the work published in 1939 by one of the artist's sons, Ludovic-Rodo Pissarro, in collaboration with Lionello Venturi, historian of impressionism. This new edition is outstanding for the indexing of 1,529 paintings, of which 213 have never been published. A first volume, focusing on Pissarro's biography also proposes a study of his early works, an analysis of his relation with his principal dealer, Paul Durand-Ruel, and a synthesis of his art using newly discovered paintings. The second and third volumes constitute the critical catalogue itself, with a study of the paintings in chronological order; a bibliography and the exhaustive list of exhibitions are situated at the end of the first volume for easy reference when reading the notices.

As a follow up to this last catalogue, a volume dedicated to the artist's pastels and gouaches is in preparation. Bringing together more than 500 works on paper, this work will unveil an unexpected aspect of the art of PISSARRO. Having scenes from everyday life in the country, portraits and landscapes as their subjects, these pastels and gouaches are finished works in themselves, as much in terms of the precise use of line as by the brilliance and refinement of the colors. A large section will be devoted to his works on silk, among them the 60 or so fans included in the index. It is here that Camille Pissarro's skills as a colorist will be recognized in all their diversity.
