Bravo to Exhibition on Screen, for giving art lovers access to museums and artworks in select cinemas around the world! This May, the spotlight is on “The Father of Impressionism,” Camille Pissarro. In the first major retrospective in four decades, the Ashmolean Museum Oxford opens its archives to reveal their wonderfully extensive and rich collection of this forward-thinking artist’s work. The film follows Pissarro to Paris, from life as the leader of a scorned artistic movement to the revered “old man” who championed Claude Manet, Paul Cézanne, and Pierre-Auguste Renoir, who called Pissarro’s work ‘revolutionary’ His paintings gain an added dimension with interviews with curators, and a narration consisting of the many letters the often-misunderstood radical wrote to his most loyal audience: his family.

Mary Cassatt made a career painting the lives of the women around her. Her radical images showed them as intellectual, feminine and real, which was a major shift in the way women appeared in art.
Presenting her astonishing prints, pastels and paintings, this film introduces us to the often-overlooked Impressionist whose own career was as full of contradiction as the women she painted.
She printed, sketched, and painted dozens of images of mothers and children yet she never married or had children herself. She was a classically trained artist but chose to join a group of Parisian radicals – the Impressionists – a movement that transformed the language of art.
The world’s most eminent Cassatt curators and scholars help tell this riveting tale of great social and cultural change; a time when women were fighting for their rights and the language of art was completely re-written. Mary Cassatt and her modern women were at the heart of it all.
