2014 - THE 50th ANNIVERSARY OF
STERN PISSARRO GALLERY
Live Auction - works on paper
For the first time in its 50 year history Stern Pissarro Gallery is holding an auction. This sale is a collection of works on paper by members of the Pissarro family, offering an insight into the ideas and motivations of these artists. Many of the drawings being auctioned are completely fresh to the art market, having come directly from estates within the family. The highlights of the collection include early double-sided drawings that Camille executed in Venezuela, an extremely rare drawing by Félix Pissarro, Camille's third son who died at the age of twenty three, and a group of works by Georges Manzana Pissarro, framed for the first time, executed in Morocco, where he took refuge during the First World War.
Georges Manzana Pissarro
8 December 2014 to 7 January 2015
This exhibition presents the Orientalist style works of Georges Manzana Pissarro. Until just after his father's death, Manzana painted with the Impressionnists and produced work of extraordinary quality. However, like his brothers he wanted to find his own pictorial language. Embarking into a more decorative manner of painting influenced by the Art Deco movment, these shimmering works were the culmination of the artist's quest to find his own style and display his highly original technique and subject matter. In 1914 Manzana was honoured with a show at the museum of Decorative Arts in Paris. 'The Arabian Nights' known also as 'A Thousand and One Nights', fascinated Manzana and became the focus for his work for over 10 years.
