Despite living outside of Paris where costs were more manageable, Camille Pissarro remained aware of new directions in painting and was often sought out by others for advice. Pissarro himself was also no stranger to innovation. In the latter half of the 1880s he experimented with Neo-Impressionism, having been introduced to its younger practitioners Georges Seurat and Paul Signac by his son Lucien.

NGV Senior Curator Dr Ted Gott considers the many sides of Camille Pissarro’s life and art including his ongoing drive for experimentation.
