KIRKUS REVIEW

A handsomely illustrated (52 color reproductions, 19 black-and-white) short study of the prolific impressionist painter, from the early influence of Corot and Millet through Pissarro's part in the great series of impressionist exhibitions, the excursion into pointillism, the experiments in etching and lithography. Cogniat's broad, non-technical approach stresses the ""serene equanimity"" and ""wisdom"" of Pissarro's ""untroubled"" landscape-world.
