Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

This catalog for a show at Atlanta's High Museum explores the synergy between two French painters, Claude Monet and Frederick Bazille. An introduction and two essays imply that, because of their shared working conditions and close relationship, the pair parallel Picasso and Braque. This may be stretching things a bit. In separate essays, Champa (art, Brown Univ.), Brenneman (a curator at the High Museum), and Dianne W. Pitman (an independent scholar) competently interpret early paintings, describe the painters' mode of working (en plein air), explore their experiences at Gleyre's ?cole, detail Bazille's financial independence and attendance at medical school, examine Monet's marriage to his model, and discuss their circle of friends, including Renoir. In the end, though, it seems less likely that the two were codependent than that Bazille was dependent on Monet. The book is well-illustrated with reproductions that are arranged carefully to match the text. Recommended for its unique perspective to large public library and museum collections.

4 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Joseph Reader on October 22, 2007
Format: Hardcover
I just received this book, which I ordered, sight unseen. I have not read much of the text, as my interest and focus are the paintings themselves. (So, I offer no opinion on the merits of the text.) As for the reproductions of the paintings: they are mediocre reproductions--not horrible but also not very good. The depth of color is simply not there. I am disappointed and wish I had not spent good money for this book.
