The binding to this book is already falling apart after one reading. The book weights like a feather, light though it's a huge book. The reproductions of the painting are average (based on seeing the paintings in museums in Germany) but many of the paintings are a quarter of a page. There is one redeeming feature of this book: it contains a lot of interesting information on the painting and the time. A pity that it's the only English book on German Impressionist painting. Individual Impressionist artists from German-speaking countries are currently found in Amazon.de/ but the prize is hefty.
