Description

Impressionist painter Camille Pissarro worked at once at an atomic and a planetary level. His use of small points or dots of color suggests an understanding of the world as made of small, particular elements that collide and interact without system or plan, while his compositions often suggest that the earth must be understood as an ecological and social totality. Join Stephen Eisenman, Professor of Art History at Northwestern University, as he discusses Pissarro's ability to combine these perspectives, the effort of a lifetime, one exemplified -- this lecture will reveal -- with intelligence and clarity in the DMA's Apple Harvest of 1888 and several related works.
