The Impressionists developed one of the most innovative movements in the history of Western art. Their revolutionary ideas about light and colour, expression, realism, the aim of painting and the role of the artist, all laid the foundations of modern art. Although ridiculed at first by the art establishment in Europe, Impressionism became one of the most celebrated and popular of art styles, and artists such as Monet, Manet, Pissaro and Renoir have achieved enduring acclaim.

Critic Philip Cooper has chosen illustrations to show the diversity of and connections between Impressionist paintings, and has written detailed commentary on each colour plate.

On the Colour Library Series

"Ideal introductions for students and museum-goers."―Independent

"The Phaidon Colour Library Series provides an invaluable introduction to key artists and movements in art history."―Art & Craft

Synopsis:

The Impressionists were scorned by the establishment during their lifetime, yet they are now among the most popular artists of all time. This volume includes the work of some of the best known, including Monet, Pissarro, Manet, Degas, Sisley, Cezanne, Renoir, and Van Gogh. The text touches on painting techniques, light, subject matter and photography. This series acts as an introduction to key artists and movements in art history. Each title contains 48 full-page colour plates, accompanied by extensive notes, and numerous comparative illustrations in colour or black and white, a concise introduction, select bibliography and detailed source information for the images. Monographs on individual artists also feature a brief chronology.
