Today, I went to see the exhibition dedicated to the elder of the Impressionist group, Camille Pissaro, at Musée du Luxembourg.
Being a huge fan of Impressionist painting, I really had a great time. The exhibition shows more than 100 pieces of works of Pissaro (paintings, drawings and engravings), some of them being shown in France for the first time ever. The installation concentrates on the final two decades of Pissaro's life, when he settled with his family, in the village of Eragny-sur-Epte, in the suburbs of Paris.
The exhibition presents moving landscapes and a multitude of personalities featuring the pastoral surroundings of Eragny.
According to me, it's one of the best exhibitions of the season.
PS: if you stop for a cup of coffee or a cup of tea at the nearby tearoom Angelina, don't miss their exclusive creation named "Camille". It looks like an apple picked from the painter's garden. The outside is made of white chocolate and the inside is a applesauce and a mousse.
