CAMILLE PISSARRO IMPRESSIONS OF CITY & COUNTRY
Camille Pissarro (1830-1903) was one of the preeminent French Impressionists and the only artist who showed his work in all eight of the Impressionist exhibitions (1874-1886). This exhibition brings together nearly 50 paintings and works on paper in New York area public and private collections that explore the motifs Pissarro found in the rural and urban locales where he traveled and lived. Growing up in the Caribbean in a Sephardic Jewish family, Pissarro later became interested in anarchism and the plight of the poor. This exhibition examines the social ideologies and aesthetic theories that concerned Pissarro during his long career, through themes such as work and leisure, retreat from city life, and transitions in time and place, as seen in his Impressionist and Neo-Impressionist works.

Kenneth Anger grew up in Hollywood and started out as a child actor, but his interest in filmmaking was evident at an early age: he made his first film, "Who's Been Rocking My Dreamboat?", at age 9. Anger developed into one of the pioneers of the American underground film movement. His gritty, violent, often homosexual-themed films were too strong for American audiences of the time, and many of his productions were filmed in Europe, mainly France. However, Anger is best known for authoring the landmark "Hollywood Babylon" books, which detailed a far more seamier side of the Hollywood film industry than most people were aware of .
