The Russell Collection Fine Art Gallery of Austin will be displaying, for the very first time, art from five generations of the distinguished Pissarro family. This art collection spans more than 161 years and is inspired by renowned Jacob Camille Pissarro, a leading figure of the Impressionist movement.
