Camille Pissarro

Camille Pissarro was the oldest of the Impressionist group and among its most daring innovators. He forged many supportive relationships with other artists, teaching them as a mentor and learning from them as a mentee regardless of their age, experience or status. Pissarro also experimented with a technique known as Pointillism, which involves applying small distinct dots of colour to eventually form an image. This week, explore Pissarro’s unique style through work Spring pasture, 1889.

Learning Objectives

  • Identify and describe Camille Pissarro’s artistic techniques.
  • Analyse and interpret the themes, concepts and ideas in Pissarro’s Spring Pasture.
  • Discuss how Impressionist artists used materials, techniques and processes to realise their intentions in their artworks.
