In this video, Guillermo Solana, Artistic Director of the Thyssen‐Bornemisza Museum and curator of this exhibition, explains the Pissarro exhibition hosted from 4 June to 12 September 2013 at the Museum of Madrid.Landscape, the prevailing genre within Camille Pissarro’s oeuvre, provides the focus of the exhibition, which is organised chronologically around the different places in which the artist lived and worked. While Pissarro spent most of his life in villages such as Louveciennes, Pointoise and Éragny, the last two rooms in the exhibition are devoted to the urban views that he painted in the last decade of his life, including his numerous depictions of Paris, London, Rouen, Dieppe and Le Havre.
