A canon-kicking conversation about two Caribbean-born painters—Francisco Oller and Camille Pissarro.

Two painters met in Paris in 1858, where they painted portraits, still lifes, and local landscapes, anchoring compositions with a sense of place.

McNay Director Richard Aste co-curated the exhibition Impressionism and the Caribbean: Francisco Oller and His Transatlantic World, which was awarded a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts. His lecture expands the narrative about non-European artists as participants in the Impressionist revolution.

Noise Allowed: For those who have a restless little one, would like close access to the restrooms, arrive after the lecture has started, or want to move around, this talk is broadcast in the Valero Learning Centers.

Simultaneous English-Spanish translation is also available with headsets.
