Essay by Joachim Pissarro.
From the mid-1860s to the mid-1880s two artistic legends, Paul C¬zanne and Camille Pissarro, executed numerous paintings side by side as they worked in Pontoise and Auvers. This book accompanies an exhibition of 74 paintings and 8 drawings that embody the core of the two artists' collaboration and explores their artistic relationship in detail. Their dynamic interaction began with their first meeting at the Academie Suisse, Paris, circa 1861, and continued through much of their careers. To examine the techniques that C¬zanne and Pissarro adopted in response to each other's work, the exhibition and book juxtapose related works by both artists, reuniting many of them for the first time since they were created. The friendship between C¬zanne and Pissarro was of considerable importance within the development of early modernism. An essay by Joachim Pissarro discusses this fascinating interchange and offers new insights into both the shared and the distinctive elements of the two artists' aesthetic sensibility.

Studying the effects of light, climate, and the seasons, Camille Pisarro experimented with art theory and technique, and fused a distinctive style that remained his own within the larger style of Impressionism. This publication presents Pisarro's oeuvre in all its thematic and artistic diversity. It is a spectrum which extends from the coloristic masterpieces of his early years, especially his landscapes, through to his later, equally famous views of Rouen and Paris, and includes a diversity of subject matter as seen in his portraits, still lifes, market scenes and representations of everyday peasant life.
