This historical event brings together more than fifty of Pissarro's earliest oil sketches, watercolors, ink and pencil sketches on oil and paper, some of which had been attributed to Danish artist Fritz Melbye for more than a century.

Here we bring together information about Pissarro, the exhibit, and a television special produced by Virgin Islands Public Television affiliate WTJX-TV. We hope you will join us!
