Without Camille Pissarro, there is no Impressionist movement. He is rightfully known as the father of Impressionism.

It was a dramatic path that Pissarro followed, and throughout it all he wrote extensively to his family. It is through these intimate and revealing letters that this gripping film reveals Pissarro's life and work.

Born in the West Indies, Pissarro found his passion in paint as a young man in Paris, and by the age of 43 had corralled a group of enthusiastic artists into a new collective. Their first show was scorned by the critics, but the group had acquired a new name: the Impressionists. For the next 40 years Pissarro was the driving force behind what has today become the world's favourite artistic movement.

This major new exhibition at Oxford's Ashmolean Museum is the first major retrospective in over 40 years. Cezanne called Pissarro "the first impressionist." The Ashmoelan has an enormous and unequalled archive of Pissarro's works, correspondence and more.

The Ashmolean Museum has a long tradition of excellence. As the UK's first ever public museum (it opened its doors in May 1683) it houses a wonderfully rich collection, including the remarkable Pissarro archive. With exclusive access to most extensive archive of any Impressionist painter, and to the first major Pissarro retrospective in four decades, this film explores and highlights the enthralling and hugely important biography and output of an incredible artist.
