Pioneering Modern Painting: Cézanne and Pissarro 1865–1885
June 26–September 12, 2005
Pioneering Modern Painting features approximately eighty paintings and eight drawings executed by both artists as they worked side by side in Pontoise and Auvers in France's Oise River Valley. An insightful collection of portraits, still lifes, and landscapes is presented—including many that depict exactly the same motif and that are reunited for the first time since they were created.
The exhibition is accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue featuring a scholarly essay by Joachim Pissarro on this fascinating artistic interchange.
The exhibition is made possible by The Starr Foundation.
