ABSTRACT PISSARRO –The Book

cover for blog

 

“Abstract Pissarro sheds new light on Camille Pissarro’s innovative and rich painting techniques, highlighting in unparalleled words his role in the birth of modern art. Ann Saul explores, in depth, Pissarro’s continual experimentation and adaptation of new ideas and lays out how artists to this day have continued to be inspired by his work. This book provides a radical and fresh look at art history.

—Joachim Pissarro, art historian and great-grandson of Camille Pissarro

“Ann Saul has a very strong knowledge of the artist’s life and œuvre and a very accurate and sensitive eye.”

—Claire Durand-Ruel Snollaerts, art historian and great-great-granddaughter of Paul Durand-Ruel

Joachim Pissarro and Claire Durand-Ruel Snollaerts are co-authors of Pissarro: Catalogue Critique des Peintures (2005).

ABSTRACT PISSARRO questions what we believe about Pissarro as an Impressionist and shows how he, in fact, planted the seeds for abstract art in his rebellion against the Paris Salon. The radical innovations he introduced are evident in paintings of the Abstract Expressionists and contemporary abstract painters today.

ABSTRACT PISSARRO will be available on Amazon in coming weeks. For more information or to order a copy now, write: abstractpissarro@yahoo.com.
