Joachim Pissarro, the great-grandson of Impressionist painter Camille Pissarro, is Curator of European and Contemporary Art at the Yale University Art Gallery. He has published several books in the United States, including Monet's Cathedral: Rouen, 1892-1894.Review:
"The success of Monet and the Mediterranean suits Monet's own, because it is comparably multifaceted: as biography, it is insightful; as history, it is innovative; as critical interpretation, it is both poetic and sound.
In Pissarrro's text, Monet's 'Southern' paintings emerge as if seen for the first time: never before have they been related so evocatively to the prevailing cultural myths of the Mediterranean . . . . "--Richard Shiff, author of Cézanne and the End of Impressionism
"This is Joachim Pissarro's greatest gift: a deep love for painting which he communicates in an especially thoughtful and subtle way. At once a scrupulous historian, an imaginative theorest, and an incisive critic, Mr. Pissarro is committed to the highest standards of intellectual as well as aesthetic engagement with our inherited legacy of works of art. This is no merely custodial relation to the past, however, for through his work he means to transform how we will engage with the vital issues of our own culture today."--Steven Z. Levine, author of Monet, Narcissus, and Self-Reflection
