28 Feb-28 May 2006. The friendship and mutual influence of the two impressionist masters are at the centre of this extensive exhibition at the Muse dOrsay. Caribbean-born Camille Pissarro (1830-1903) spent most of his life in France and met Paul Czanne (1839-1906) in 1861. Czanne was a frequent visitor at Pissarros house in Pontoise and they also painted together in Auvers. This exhibition brings together the two mens portraits, landscapes and still-lifes, hanging them in such a way as to highlight the kinship between the two artists, whilst underlining the qualities which made them unique. The exhibition has been assembled by the New York Museum of Modern Art, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and the Muse d'Orsay. Admission 9, concessions 7, under 18s and the unemployed free. Tues-Sun 09.30-18.00, Thurs 09.30-21.45.
