THE IMPRESSIONIST AND THE CITY: PISSARRO'S SERIES PAINTINGS. Richard R. Brettell and Joachim Pissarro. Dallas Museum of Art, 1992. Organized in association with Philadelphia Museum of Art and Royal Academy of Arts, London. Published by Yale University Press, New Haven. 284 pp. with 223 ills. (213 col.). 29 x 26 cm. LC 92-50580 ISBN 0300053509 In English.
Thoroughly examines the eleven extensive series of cityscapes painted by Camille Pissarro (1830-1903) during the last decade of his life, featuring fine color reproductions of 153 canvases produced in Paris, Le Havre, Rouen and Dieppe, many of them simultaneously executed studies of identical or related views. Substantial critical analyses of the individual series supplement two introductory essays which discuss Pissarro's portrayal of urban scenes in relation to the work of Canaletto, Monet and other artists and evaluate the aesthetic, philosophical and political concerns informing the painter's rigorous exploration of the city as a motif.
