Description

My research paper explores how the French artist Camille Pissarro (1830-1903) represented Paris in his unique artist’s book, Turpitudes Sociales (1889). This album of pen and ink drawings was motivated by Pissarro’s anarchist beliefs. The album reached beyond its family audience, becoming part of print culture in Paris.
