Richard Brettell, PhD, Founding Director, The Edith O’Donnell Institute of Art History and the Margaret McDermott Distinguished Chair, University of Texas at Dallas

Richard BrettellCamille Pissarro was the only artist who exhibited in all eight group exhibitions that defined the Impressionist movement. Yet, he was neither French nor Christian, so he lived on the margins of French society. Pissarro was the most politically engaged of all the Impressionists, and his paintings, must be read as the work of an outsider and committed anarchist. Dr. Brettell discuss the social and political meanings of one of Pissarro’s canonical paintings,
Apple Harvest of 1888.
