Camille Pissarro’s work “Un coin de l’Hermitage, Pontoise” (1878) was the first Impressionist painting to enter the Öffentliche Kunstsammlung Basel, the public art collection of Basel. The painting was acquired in 1912 on the initiative of several artists and art enthusiasts. The decision, which some contemporary observers viewed with skepticism, laid the foundation for the Kunstmuseum’s collection of Impressionist art.
Now the Kunstmuseum Basel presents “Camille Pissarro – The Studio of Modernism”, a comprehensive exhibition that offers an overview of Camille Pissarro’s output and his collaborative relationships with his other artists such as Paul Cézanne, Claude Monet, Paul Gauguin, Edgar Degas, and Mary Cassatt. This video provides you with an exhibition walkthrough, focusing on some of the highlights of Camille Pissarro’s oeuvre. The exhibition runs until January 23, 2022.
