Format: Hardcover
This large, sturdy volume is the catalogue/souvenir of the touring exhibit of "Post-Impressionist Masterpieces from the Musée D'Orsay, currently on display at the De Young Museum in San Francisco. This exhibit is, in a sense, the sequel to a exhibit of Impressionist painting from the D'Orsay, which has already passed through SF. Both exhibits are relatively small, just a few tight rooms full of paintings. Together they might have been "more than enough" but seen in close sequence they are "just right" for people, like me, who are easily overloaded by vast exhibits.

This exhibit is hardly as focused on the greatest paintings by the three masters as its 'title' implies. Yes, there are indeed several undeniable masterpieces each by Cézanne, Gauguin, and van Gogh, along with several surprisingly masterful paintings by Paul Sérusier, Théo van Rysselberghe, Émile Bernard, and others, plus two stupendously potent and original large paintings by Henri Rousseau. The whole exhibit, however, is patently the concept of art historians, intended as pedagogy, with just a soupçon of condescension. Don't worry! The pedantry can be overlooked, along with the couple of inferior paintings chosen for 'historical' reasons. What do art historians and musicologists have in common? I'll let that question settle itself.

As a 'coffee table' art book, this catalogue has pluses and minuses. The color printing is quite accurate. The textures and brushwork are adequately reproduced, given the issues of scale. The paper is sturdy and the book seems likely to wear well. Some of the finest paintings, however, are annoyingly creased across two pages.

The catalogue of the exhibit in San Francisco, as I write, serves as a reminder of that fine presentation of the brief but highly experimental period after the Impressionists/Independents had opened the doors of the art world. The quality of the colored reproductions in my copy (to contrast the other reviewer) is somewhat muted or of low contast, such that the psychodelic bold painting of pointillist Luce appears bland and soft and the confident yellow of Sérusier's The Talisman becomes soiled olive. Any book image pales to the effect of the original, of course, but those in my tome deflate the importance and excitement of the exhibit, for that and this book will introduce the reader to unfamiliar colleagues of renown artists who explored new territory, producing a variety of trial branches. For instance, I had not before heard of the Nabis group of mystical artists centered at a graphic approach with solids, again an influence of the recently imported Japanese woodcuts and prints. The included essays will assist in appreciating the works. Thus, allowing for possible inferior reproductions, the book is a worthwile reference and summary.

This is undoubtedly the ugliest art book ever. The problem is that the colors are not calibrated properly and the images are hideously misrepresented. The emphasis is on the wrong brush strokes due to this error. If you want the background on the show, by all means buy it but do not ever believe that these fabulous works of art bear any resemblance to what lies between the covers of this book.
