Paths of Pissarro with Carol Ehlers

Thursday, May 25, 2017

This spring, the Muscatine Art Center welcomes back Carol Ehlers, art history speaker, to present a two part program on the life of artist Camille Pissarro. The “Paths of Camille Pissarro” program will explore how the artist’s work changed during his lifetime. Admission is free and open to the public. Thursday, May 25, 2017 Paths of Camille Pissarro: Crossroads in an Artistic Career In the mid-1880s, Pissarro settled in Eragny, a suburb of Paris, where he became interested in the scientific theories of George Seurat and Paul Signac. The second program in this two-part series follows Pissarro as he moves from Seurat’s Pointillism to rural landscapes and finally to city scenes. A known anarchist, Pissarro used his artwork to express his political views. Pissarro’s public protest of the Dreyfus Affair, his views on urbanization, and his personal health struggles are among the topics covered in the program.
