Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Writing with the sensitivity and erudition that made him one of the most illuminating and accessible writers of his generation, Meyer Schapiro offers a fresh and exciting new look at "the Impressionist family". He bypasses the popular preference, in art historical writing, for a strictly theoretical point of view and employs a broad range of contextual themes — art history, economics, politics, philosophy, literature, science, and even environmental history — to examine the Impressionist painters and their works within their original cultural settings. Exploring minute details and broad, historical trends, reaching back into eighteenth-century history and ahead to Abstract Expressionism, Schapiro provides an unparalleled account of Impressionism as a turning point in the history of modern art.

Book News Annotation:

Schapiro (art history, Columbia U.) illuminates Impressionism through a broad spectrum of disciplines, including history, science, economics, politics, linguistics, philosophy, and literature. Schapiro, who died in 1996 at the age of 92, held professorships at Harvard, Oxford, and Columbia during his career. He looks at the way impressionists dealt with the city, the railroad, portraiture, performers, nature and the environment, and perspective. The book is filled with color reproductions of the works discussed.
