Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Luscious dabs of color and light.  Art historys most delightful movement

 

This monograph covers the full scope of Impressionist painting. The first part outlines the history of Impressionism in France, addressing not only the work of the acknowledged masters, but also that of such unjustly neglected artists as Frédéric Bazille, Gustave Caillebotte, Berthe Morisot, or Lucien Pissarro. The second part examines the Impressionist movements that emerged in the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, Scandinavia, Eastern and Southeast Europe, Italy, Spain, Britain, and North America. A 64-page “Directory of Impressionism” is appended, containing bibliographies, portraits, and biographical data on all 236 artists.

“Impressionism is not a movement, it is a philosophy of life.”

—Max Liebermann
