DEAR FRIENDS AT PARIS 50 PLUS

 For more than 20 years, I have enjoyed studying the art of Camille Pissarro and traveling to the places he painted. Now I am sharing this with others in my book PISSARRO’S PLACES.

 This is a special invitation to all of you join me on at a

 Slide-Lecture on PISSARRO’S PLACES

May 22 at 7:30 pm

American Library in Paris

10 rue du Général Camou

75007 Paris

 

Pissarro’s paintings invite you to join him in that place. You stand by his side as he plants his easel beside the river. You see the clouds scudding across the sky and the barge passing by. From a fourth floor balcony, you look down on the cityscape and hear the horse’s hooves on the street. PISSARRO’S PLACES takes you to those places so you can see them through his eyes.

 Unlike Monet, Sisley, and Cézanne who made most of their paintings in Giverny, Moret, or Provence, Pissarro could not be tied to a single place. Because of that, Pissarro does not have one identifying image like Monet’s water lilies or Cézanne’s MontSainte Victoire. You cannot “brand” Pissarro—he always surprises you.

    Peggy Schuler has come to Paris to search for an apartment to purchase for her son. She plans to stay with me out in Bourg la Reine starting May 11th through the month of May.
    As she will have to travel to Paris each day to meet with Realtors and visit properties, we would like to find her somewhere in Paris to save wear and tear on her daily routine.
    If anyone has a guest room where you would be willing to host her or know of a guest room that is not to terribly expensive, please email me. If you know of someone that might need a housesitter in Paris, that would be an ideal situation for her.
    Please let us know by emailing Patricia: [masked]
    or Peggy: [masked]

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
