    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.
    Born in the West Indies, Pissarro found his passion
    in paint as a young man in Paris, and by the age of 43
    had corralled a group of enthusiastic artists into a new
    collective. Their first show was scorned by the critics, but
    the group had acquired a new name: the Impressionists.
    For the next 40 years Pissarro was the driving force
    behind what has today become the world’s favourite
    artistic movement.

    The Ashmolean Museum has a long tradition of
    excellence. As the UK’s first ever public museum (it
    opened its doors in May 1683) it houses a wonderfully
    rich collection, including the remarkable Pissarro archive.
    With exclusive access to 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.
