Description

The exhibition ‘Pissarro in Eragny. Nature regained' showing from 16 March to 9 July 2017 at the Musée du Luxembourg, highlights a little-known period of the life of Camille Pissarro, between 1884 and 1903, when he lived in Eragny-sur-Epte.

The painter, a forerunner of the Impressionist movement, moved into a charming property in this small village. The richness of the landscape of the French Vexin as well as the work in the fields and the rustic scenes provided the artist with a wonderful source of inspiration. Camille Pissarro experienced a veritable pictorial revival there working in the Neo-Impressionist style and with watercolours. Archival documents, paintings and drawings reflect these years of intense artistic creation.

Musée du Luxembourg

The Luxembourg Museum was the first French museum opened to the public, in 1750. It now hosts two exhibitions a year. These are organized by the Réunion des Musées Nationaux and the Grand Palais. Choice themes are the Renaissance in Europe, the relationship between art and power, as well as the role of Paris as the capital of the arts. Close to the Palace and Luxembourg Gardens, the Museum, owned by the Senate, enjoys an exceptional setting in the heart of the Latin Quarter. Its spaces have been completely redesigned by architect Shigeru Ban to accommodate the Angelina restaurant/tea room and educational workshops of the Museum.
