Here’s all the info.
It’s party time for all Pissaro fans – his work is already on show at the Musée Marmottan, and now the Musée du Luxembourg takes an in-depth look at the painter’s last two decades of work, created at Éragny-sur-Epte, a complex and little-studied period of the painter’s career.
You’ll see a lot of courtryside scenes of course, but also a few portraits, all of which have a slightly political side (Pissarro was a fervent anarchist). Together with his wife, the painter transformed and farmed his land, using a collective model. He believed that the landscape symbolised both life and beauty.
For further exploration of the subject there are:
– guided visits,
– special events for the Nuit des Musées,
– a cycle of films at the 3 Luxembourg cinema,
– a catalogue de l’exhibition (212 pages, 185 illustrations, 35€ here at amazon.fr)…
The exhibition Pissarro in Éragny – Nature regained is at the Musée du Luxembourg (here) from 16th March – 9th July 2017
Open every day from 10.30am-6pm (7pm Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays)
Admission: 12€ / 8,50€
