Van Gogh Museum Acquires 91 Prints by Camille Pissarro

The Van Gogh Museum has acquired a total of 91 prints by Camille Pissarro (1830-1903). The sizeable collection reveals the extent of Pissarro’s experimental approach and contains innumerable unique pieces, including a sought-after self-portrait by the artist.

The prints are from the Samuel Josefowitz Collection, and were amassed over many decades with great passion, expertise and patience. The entire collection has now been acquired by the museum. Together, the works provide a comprehensive overview of the artist’s printed oeuvre.

Camille Pissarro was one of the leading and most productive representatives of Impressionist printmaking, creating some 200 etchings and litpgraphs during his career. His art was a major source of inspiration for Vincent van Gogh.

From 1 March to 26 May, 42 of the acquired prints will be on display in a special presentation in the print cabinet in the Exhibition Wing of the museum.
