Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Gorgeous, oversize, and filled with hundreds of full color reproductions of the world's finest Impressionist creations, this dream volume will-thrill art lovers with its coverage of one of the most beloved styles of painting ever produced. Every page presents awe-inspiring works, from the early days of the movement to its heyday when such geniuses as Degas, Monet, Renoir, Cezanne, Gaugin, van Gogh, Seurat, and others produced their timeless masterpieces. These celebrated images, which beautifully captured both modern life in Paris and nature in all its ever-changing glory, are all placed in historical context; in addition to discussing the important events of the time, the illuminating background evaluates the group's inspiration and formation; the important shows and their reception; the painters' consecration, and the legacy they left for future artists. Among the indelible pieces showcased: Manet's "Dejeuner sur I'herbe"; Degas' "The Dance Class"; Cezanne's "Modern Olympia"; Berthe Morisot's "The Psyche"; Seurat's "A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte"; Renoir's "The Loge," and many more.
