Pissarro in Éragny exhibition at the Musée du Luxembourg, 16th March – 9th July 2017

Art and Culture, newsletter - eng

So the Grand Palais has Gardens, and now the Musée du Luxembourg (two minutes from our hotels) suggests we study Pissarro in the bucolic surroundings of Éragny. Spring has sprung!

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,
– conferences,
– 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)…
