    I’m not a fan of unraveling critics’ musings on an artist’s work. The theories, the fabricated logic to explain beauty or rank an artist or a work, as interesting and informative as they can be, begin to feel convoluted and irrelevant, often revealing more to me about the critics than the artist. Parts of Camille Pissarro had me counting pages to the end of the chapter.Sounds like I hated this book. I did not. I enjoyed the sections dealing with Pissarro’s life, his circumstances when he produced certain works, and seeing how he changed over the years. Looking at a painting is personal. Do I understand color harmony, brushwork, composition? Can I plug Pissarro accurately into his rightful place in Art History? I’m trying, and I’d love to, but no. What does a painting make me feel, think about? Camille Pissarro’s work amazes me, and Camille Pissarro presents so much of that work so beautifully and so thoroughly. Here’s a small example of how viewing Pissarro’s work affected me. One evening as I was watching the news I found myself lost in a story’s background, noticing those same colors and effects which run through Pissarro’s work, remarking to myself how the greens, the light browns, and the pacific blues combined in a comforting way. My wife made a comment, and my attention shifted to the story, which to my horror dealt with an ISIS fighters’ training camp. Art can be complicated, confusing, cathartic, and a respite; lots of smart folks have lots of theories and explications to make sense of it. I’ll read through them, glean what I can, probably end up counting pages, but the paintings will reward, and this book has lots of paintings.Great review, huh - I liked reading Camille Pissarro because it had lots of pictures. Genius.

    Schön gemachtes Buch, zur Ausstellung von 2000 in Stuttgart.Als Pissarro-Neuling eine Fundgrube. Werke aus den frühen bis in die späten Jahre. Mit umfangreichem Kapitel auch zu Zeichnungen und Drucken.Ausgerechnet jenes Gemälde, durch das ich überhaupt auf ihn neugierig geworden bin, fehlt dann. Hermitage bei Pointoise (Guggenheim Museum New York)Ein unermüdlicher Künstler. Beim Deutsch-Französischen Krieg gehen fast alle jener Werke, die er bis dahin noch nicht verkauft hatte, verloren. Kein Grund für ihn, auch nur eine Schaffenskrise zu bekommen.Der einzige führende Impressionist, der den Stil auch in Druckgraphiken übernommen hat.Der Handfeste unter den Impressionisten.
