The Impressionists Handbook: The Great Works and the World That Inspired Them

The Impressionists Handbook: The Great Works and the World That Inspired Them Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This is the story of those revolutionary painters and the dramatic times that shaped their vision, complete with more than 160 color reproductions of their greatest masterpieces, from Manets Olympia to Renoirs The Path in the Grass. The first half of the volume recounts the history of the movement, while the second section focuses on the lives and works of the most significant individual artists.

Book News Annotation:

The two authors, who are both knowledgable writers with extensive background in the study of art and art history, write engagingly about the history of impressionism and the life and works of Pissarro, Manet, Degas, Monet, Renoir, and Sisley. At 7x8.5<">, the book is compact, but the format is large enough to accommodate decent reproductions of many of the paintings under consideration. This is a thoughtfully prepared, well written treatment of the subject, with none of the ponderousness that "handbook" might imply. It was originally published in 1991 by Bookmart Ltd., UK.
