Format: Hardcover
This wonderful book is a catalogue of an exhibition organised by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, The Art Institute of Chicago and the Reunion des Musees Nationaux, Paris. The artists represented include Monet, Cezanne, Renoir, Seurat, Gauguin, Manet, Signac and Pissarro.
But this book is not merely a catalogue - it stands alone as an excellent and readable book about the artistic and social worlds of the artists. The essays are interesting and mercifully free of inaccessible jargon, so the generalist really can learn something about the context of the Impressionist movement, the paintings themselves and the artists.
An example: the opening of the essay `The Impressionist Landscape and the Image of France: " When the Impressionists began to paint the French landscape in the 1860s, they were not alone. Several satirical writers had already counted more landscape painters than tourists or peasants in their travels through the French countryside, and the official Salon exhibitions held annually in Paris were all but dominated by French landscapes. Books and manuals about landscape painting for both amateur and professional artists abounded, and if there was a national genre in French art, it was surely landscape. The painters were joined by a legion of printmakers, draftsmen, and popular illustrators in an almost frantic collective attempt to record the national physiognamy.
