KIRKUS REVIEW

John Rewald, Impressionism's leading expositor, has written the extensive introductory commentary on the dean of this movement, who then- and still today- has never quite achieved the recognition of his friends (Monet, Cezanne). Here, in Pissarro's work, one sees all the qualities Impressionism was to espouse and embody: spontaneity, freedom, light and nuance-- the often unassuming subjects, the color which varies from subtle to powerful.
