Camille Pissarro made tremendous contributions to painting in the 19th century, capturing the landscape with the short markings and visually compelling color contrasts that became distinguishing characteristics of Impressionism and Post-Impressionism. Painting has continued to filter down through the Pissarro bloodline, producing the five generations of artists who will exhibit their work together at Russell Collection Fine Art.
