EXHIBIT PISSARRO AT THE BMA

The Baltimore Museum of Art's newest exhibit, which opens Sunday, highlights painter Camille Pissarro's artistic style shift during the late 19th century. A collection of 45 pieces are showcased in Pissarro: Creating the Impressionist Landscape and will reveal his transformation from traditional landscapes to more bold works.

This exhibit is the first to highlight Pissarro's stylistic transformation and includes large-scale paintings that emerged in the Salon exhibitions of the 1860s as well as landscape pieces from the initial Impressionist show of 1874. "Strollers on a Country Road, La Varenne-Saint-Hilaire" (1864), "Orchard in Bloom" (1872) and "Hoarfrost at Ennery" (1873), among others, were collected from the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Musee d'Orsay, the J. Paul Getty Museum, the Tel Aviv Museum of Art, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and from private collections.

This specially ticketed exhibit is at the BMA, Art Museum Drive at North Charles and 31st streets, Sunday through May 13. Tickets are $15 for adults, $12 for seniors, $10 for students, $6 for ages 6-18. Admission is free for BMA members and children 5 years of age and younger. Call 443-573-1700 or go to artbma.org.
