“Camille Pissarro – Father of Impressionism” - Exhibition On Screen - (1 hour, 30 minutes) - Without Camille Pissarro, there is no Impressionist movement. He is rightfully known as the father of Impressionism. It was a dramatic path that Pissarro followed, and throughout it all he wrote extensively to his family. It is through these intimate and revealing letters that this gripping film reveals Pissarro’s life and work. The Ashmolean Museum (the UK’s first ever public museum) houses a wonderfully rich collection, including the remarkable Pissarro archive. With exclusive access to the most extensive archive of any Impressionist painter, and to the first major Pissarro retrospective in four decades, this film explores and highlights the enthralling and hugely important biography and output of an incredible artist. Playing Thursday, May 26 at 7 p.m. and Friday, May 27 at 2 p.m. Tickets: $15/adult, $13/members, $5/youth 18 and under.
