Pissaro in Eragny - Nature Regained; a new exhibition at the Luxembourg Museum

Pissaro in Eragny - Nature Regained; a new exhibition at the Luxembourg Museum

With paintings, drawings and engravings as superb as they are relatively little known, in addition to family archives, the Pissaro in Eragny - Nature Regained exhibition is a fresh look at the life and work of the Danish-French Impressionist and Neo-Impressionist painter Camille Pissaro (1830-1903). No Pissaro exhibition has been organised in Paris since the retrospective of 1980-1981 in the National Galleries of the Grand Palais, so this examination of a less studied period of the artist’s career is long overdue. In the spring of 1884 Pissaro moved to Eragny, where he rented a beautiful farmhouse which he later came to own thanks to a loan granted by his friend, Claude Monet. Here he remained for the rest of his life, painting his picturesque surroundings and the workers toiling in the fields, while expressing his political convictions in his paintings and his way of life. It is striking to think that Monet’s garden and Pissaro’s farm bordered the same stream, traversing the landscape from Ergany to Giverny before joining the Seine in the vicinity of Vernon. Meanwhile, 80 photographs presented until July 23rd on the gates of the Jardin du Luxembourg will testify to the high level of interest in traditional gardens, courtesy of the great names of photography.
