Camille Pissarro

The Audacity of Impressionism

by Anka Muhlstein Translated by Adriana Hunter

“On rare occasions, a biography introduces you to an artist whose life reminds you of all the joy and beauty on offer to those who seek them, along with all the hardship the seeker must transcend. Camille Pissarro is such a character, and Anka Muhlstein’s exquisite portrait of him is such a revelation.” —Judith Thurman, National Book Award–winning author of Isak Dinesen: The Life of a Storyteller

“Here is life-writing at its most vivid and engrossing. Pissarro emerges as heroic in his artistic dedication and collegial generosity—a patriarch and saint among the painters of modern life. Muhlstein’s portrait pulses with all the particulars of a mighty life and career. Her Pissarro is irresistible.” —Benjamin Taylor, author of Proust: The Search

Praise for Monsieur Prousts Library:

“This gemlike exploration of the literary underpinnings of À la recherche du temps perdu reveals a Marcel Proust who did not so much read books as ‘absorb’ them.” —The New Yorker

“With Monsieur Proust’s Library, Anka Muhlstein has added another volume to the collection of splendid books about Proust. A woman of intellectual refinement, subtle understanding, and deep literary culture…Muhlstein is an excellent provisioner of high-quality intellectual goods.” —Wall Street Journal

“[Muhlstein] here turns her attention to Proust’s enthusiasms, antagonisms, and literary influences…sensitive to nuances of style and echoes of older standard French authors.” —Edmund White, New York Review of Books
