This is the first really definitive book on the Impressionists, featuring the work of 29 artists, including not only the most well-known French painters, but also English, American and Italian artists.
With more than 500 colour illustrations, together with superb design and production values, this book is really sumptuous and will appeal to everyone interested in this very popular genre of painting.
The book features the work of the precursors of the movement, such as Edouard Manet and Delacroix, and its most famous representatives like Claude Monet and Auguste Renoir. In addition, the eccentric and somewhat peripheral artists of the movement such as Vincent van Gogh and Paul Gauguin, are featured, as well as lesser-known Impressionists such as James Whistler and Mary Cassatt. This makes The Impressionists the most comprehensive volume ever published on this subject.
It is also a chronological survey of the life and times of the Impressionsists, from the l870s to the death of Monet in 1926, and it provides a fascinating analysis of the contemporary social and political events which influenced them. The reader is thus introduced to the heart of the Impressionist movement, which revolutionized modern art.
The 500 colour illustrations provide a complete pictorial survey of the main themes of the Impressionist genre of painting – plein air landscapes and townscapes, nudes and portraits.
