Through September 9, 2007, the Milwaukee Art Museum (MAM) is hosting Pissarro:  Creating the Impressionist Landscape, a major exhibition of French Impressionist Camille Pissarro's paintings during an important decade in his career, 1864 to 1874.

During this period, Pissarro pivoted from being a student of the Barbizon school to being a leader of the then-emerging Impressionist movement.  He then helped pave the way for an entire generation of painters influenced by his experimental techniques and vision. 

The exhibition, organized and circulated by The Baltimore Museum of Art, includes about 50 of Pissarro's works, ranging from his Salon compositions of the 1860s to some of his entries for the first Impressionist exhibition in 1874.  Its local presenting sponsors are the M&I Foundation and the Wisconsin Energy Corporation.

The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation in Milwaukee substantially supports MAM.
