Pissarro's People: Educational Resources

Dear Educator:

Thank you for supporting your students’ visit to the exhibition Pissarro’s People on view at the Legion of Honor. This exhibition presents the often-overlooked figurative paintings of Camille Pissarro. The nearly 100 works, which span the artist’s career, reveal his concern with the social, economic and political future of the communities where he lived.
