The Marriage of Opposites: by Alice Hoffman | Conversation Starters
The Marriage of Opposites is an in-depth exploration of the life of Rachel Pomié, the mother of Camille Pissarro, the father of Impressionism. Starting from Rachel’s childhood, it is a highly fictionalized story of her life and that of her son’s. Considered one of the finest painters of the twentieth century, Camille Pissarro’s personal life was not smooth. He was in constant disagreement with his business-minded parents, rebelling at every point just like his mother did before him. With vivid and colorful imagery, this book brings out how life might have been for Rachel Pomié, who unwillingly became the mother of the famous painter.
